When I open %appdata%.minecraft and then go to the file logs and open them, I see random letters. What's wrong, and how can I fix this?

The log files are compressed/archived in a format called gzip. To read them you'll need a decompressor/unarchiver that understands gzip files. 7zip is what I use — it's easy to install and free.
