[Screenshot] On Windows 7 SP1. Not sure when this changed to a generic Asian font. But the default should be MS Sans Serif. How do I change this back?

Try this:
  • Open Fonts by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts.
  • In the left pane, click Font settings.
  • Click Restore default font settings.
You made need to manually remake any changes you had previously.

Does it show up this way in any other apps besides the Logitech settings app? In any case this Superuser question seems to cover similar ground.

Neither of those options worked.

Besides Logitech, only some other programs have this issue so that's why I think it's a system-related issue.

Do you have an example of the Logitech Windows with the proper fonts? Or if not the Logitech window, perhaps another?

I’m wondering if it’s a common font you’re missing and need to reinstall.

Don't have an example of the Logitech program with the proper font, but here's another program with a messed up font:

You can see how it should look on Google:
