    Dear Forum

    I have a really terrible situation.
    When ever I need to type in admin password I get this!? See pic!?
    Here from installation of Flash. But any app demands this?

    I re-installed Yosimite and latest update and overtime it comes back.

    Any clues what this could be? font issue?

    Def looks like your default system font is missing or corrupted, have you run any "cleaner" software or anything that installs fonts?

    You could try booting in Safe Mode to see if it is caused by a login item, you may have to reinstall OSX if you can't resolve it by resetting to the standard system font.

    edit: Just saw that you already reinstalled, in that case something is overwriting the system font, either intentionally (something you have installed and reinstalled), or malware.

    Reinstall to get back to normal then check all your installers or backups to see what you are re-installing and which one causes the issue.

    Thank you guys!

    It helped a LOT!

    I went into fontbook, and cleared all duplicated fonts and removed some with a yellow tag.
    And now everything looks perfect and I can get to work again!


    thanks again -and merry xmas!
