Fonts preview in English but Font name appears in Asian?

I have CC applications and all apps have the same issue.  When I try to select a Font type the preview of many are in an Asian or South-West Asian language.  However, if I select one the type appears in English.  Since I am not fluent in whatever languages these fonts are previewing, makes it very difficult to get an idea what the will look like unless I enter type for every one.

I looked at the "AdobeFnt_CMaps.lst" and saw under "Ordering:Japan1".  I don't know if this is a clue, but I would like to know how to sync an English preview to the English type.

The fonts I am using are Native Windows 7 and Native Adobe.  I can pull-up the "Font panel" in Win 7 and, for instance, Adobe Devanagari appears to be in Devangari (if so a Language exists) but types in English.  I realize the Font names certainly sound like an Asian or Mid-Eastern language, maybe, they are intended to not be an English font, if that is the case I would like to know so I can disable them.

1.  Should the Cmaps be changed from :"Ordering:Japan1" to (Please enter correct answer here)?

2.  Are these Fonts supposed to be the language in which they appear on the thumbnails and not and I should just delete them?

3.  Is there some other fix?

4.  Does anyone know where to get some free to low cost Web/Desktop Fonts?
