Atleast 3 font files located in C:\WINDOWS\fonts\ are corrupted or of unknown version, open cmd (comamndprompt) as Administrator and enter:

DISM /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth (after it finishes, reboot PC)

Now open commandprompt once again and enter: SFC /scannow (hopefully it will restore the font files to default) + another reboot.

After the SFC recovery, go to the earlier mentioned folder, C:\WINDOWS\fonts\ and doubleclick the restored versions of tahomabd.ttf, tahoma.ttf & verdana.ttf to let Windows 'install' them.


your GTA installation is also heavily modded, including files like fonts.dat. I suspect that some GTA mod you installed also required to manipulate Windows OS's fonts and replaced the earlier mentioned ones. You can see the destructive effects of such a mod now.. please re-install GTA with a clean installation, and incase you did before.. make sure to never again lower the folder properties > security options of the OS folder  C:\WINDOWS\fonts\, especially not just to install some GTA mod.

Also, your Windows is in a pretty bad health state overall, which may cause the SFC and DISM scans to fail.. if that happens, I suggest you download and run this file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9yrjnjrkrkg7c6n/servicing.bat?dl=1 (rightclick > run as Administrator) before trying both DISM and SFC in cmd again.
