May be a font issue which means it could be font missing or font change by malware or whatever. 

 

Have you try to restart?

 

If problem issue comes up after restart, then it could be font issue or virus/malware.

Yeah it could be the problem.

 

16 or 32gb would be better.  

 

You use Adobe products which require more RAM in order to load quicker and stable.

 

8GB is okay for photo viewing, internet, messaging...

 

16 or more is okay for photo/video editing.

 

If you can't afford to get RAM, try GIMP or other free photo editing programs for low RAM computers.
