Asian characters added to Windows Explorer "Artist" tags

I just used Windows XP Explorer to modify the "Album" tags of a bunch of MP3s.
I did this as follows:
* Select a batch of files
* Right mouse click to open context menu
* Left mouse click on "Properties"
* L. click on "Summary" tab
* L. click under "Value" next to "Album Title"
* Enter new album title
* Press <Enter>
* L. click on "Apply"
* L. click on "OK"
This seemed to work fine for renamed the "Album Title" tags for a group of MP3 files.
But I was puzzled to find that for all of the MP3s whose "Album Title" tags I had renamed, the "Artist" tags had also been modified to include what looks to me to be an Asian character following the name of the artist, like this:
[NOTE: I painstakingly copied and pasted a list of examples but got this error when I tried to post this message:
"Your submission includes invalid characters. Note that only characters on a standard English keyboard will be accepted"
Is there any way I can include examples of these "Asian-like" characters?
I'm using a hand-me-down Dell Inspiron 1150 that with the version of XP Home that was on it when it was given to me. I noticed at the time that it had some options for Asian displaying Asian characters.
I'd be grateful for suggestions on how to turn off this "feature."
