finaly found a solution.
looks like it's about trouble with Font cache...

solution : (thanks to Vladb)
Exit Photoshop and the Creative Cloud desktop app (if installed).
Navigate to the appropriate folder

Windows 10: \Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC or CC 2014
Delete the CT Font Cache folder

TADA, it's working now.

That probably means the corruption came from the OS font cache - so you probably need to clear it as well.
