    The last 2 times that I have had to enter my password when doing something on my iMac, the installer window has shown what I believe to be Arabic writing. Any ideas why this is happening?

    No clue, but it seems nothing good ... did you change anything in the language configs ?

    I've seen it before...

    It's usually to do with Arabic being preferred language in system prefs...

    Remove all languages except English....
