Strange characters in messages

I have a problem with characters only in some messages (like the attached image). I use 3ds max 2011 64bit and the language I use in win7 64bit is Greek. Tried everything with language packs in windows but nothing. Any ideas?

You forgot to attach the pic [Edit: not completely I see :P]
What I think it's happening is that you're trying to use unicode characters in max. Support for them was added only in max 2013.

I think that max uses the windows locale to display some of the messages, but since it doesn't support unicode, you get that garbled text.

[this no longer applies]
The only alternative I know of is to make the text in Illustrator or Inkscape and export as shapes in an .ai file.
Check out my work:
