    Since updating my Macbook Pro Retina (August 2014) to Os Yosemite I experience some small problems. At first my whole Itunes library was gone, I did a re-install of Os yosemite and imported my itunes library but I still experience some small issues. When I restart my computer I got the following screen with my username and all other letters replaced by icons.

    Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

    First backup.

    Then if you can use something to reliably check the integrity of the physical disk(s) – Disk Utility lacks what's required – make that your second task.

    The safe boot suggestion is good, but something about the screenshot, when viewed alongside other symptoms, makes me suspect corruption of data. If so, that corruption may be symptomatic of a problem with the drive.

    If you're not inclined to dig deep for an explanation, you can simply backup all data from the drive then use Disk Utility in Recovery OS to erase (or whatever) in preparation for a clean installation of OS X.

    Another user finding peculiarity at the (loginwindow) login screen array of users

    Bonifant, you might like to take the problem(s) with iTunes to a separate topic. I now have less of a suspicion of corruption of data …

    Helvetica Neue or not?

    To any person whose Mac is affected: have you chosen something other than Helvetica Neue as the system font?

    If so, what's your choice?
