I am a beginner of the Mathematica 3.0.
     I've found problems in the Mathematica and I cannot solve the 
problem by myself. When I open the Mathematica, there's always a "beep" sound 
and a message box appears. I check "Why the beep?", it tells, "An internal 
error involving formatting in a BoxForm expression was encountered. A repeat 
part of a composite character has zero width or height."
    Also, I check the message box, "Front End Message: The stretchable
character 0xf3a5 in the Math1Mono font (size 12) has a repeating piece
(0x80) that is zero size"
    In addition, all the symbols in the Palettes becomes strange code 
which cannot be understood.I don't know how to solve the problems. I hope 
someone may help.
    Thanks a lot!
