Strings instead of correct text in Settings

Paddy Maxson 1 Reputation point

Hi all, I've a Win 10 user device that has what look like placehold strings in the Windows 10 settings windows, for example, the below. I've tried an SFC thinking this may be a missing system file which defines the strings or something but that's not seen any problems. Does anyone have any ideas?
