    Default My old Acer laptop is speaking Japanese.

    I have a very old Acer Laptop which I have not used for a few years and my wife wanted to edit something our son had written.
    I put the document from my computer onto a USB and placed it in the Acer and clicked onto it to open it and the following happened.

    A square opened marked, “File conversion-Mikes doc.odt."
    On that square another smaller square opened with a list running from top to bottom the top one showing as “Arabic (864)" at the top and the bottom showed "West European (Windows."
    What ever I do the document showing gobbledygook.

    Open Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Language.

    Set you default language back to English here.

    Or else that file could have been infected and it infected your PC. Run your antivirus software and see.
