I had the same problem.  It turns out I had an incomplete installation
of  the fonts for Mathematica 3.0.
As I recall I performed a reboot via the Windows 95 Start button when I
got  to the part where I had to reboot my computer.  Apparently you
need to do a  complete reboot or it doesn't do the right thing.

If I had to fix your problem without consulting WRI tech support, I
would  uninstall Mathematica and reinstall.  When you get to the part
where you reboot your  computer, perform a total reboot going all the
way to no power.

You might call WRI tech support for a more definitive answer.  They had
a  solution for me that involved deleting only the math-fonts and only 
reinstalling the fonts.
