This looks similar to the issue reported in 
http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?50964 although it's not clear why, for 
you, it started suddenly and in other software as well. With the report 
above almost 2 years old it isn't likely be some Windows update that 
broke mingw libraries.

Maybe trying what is suggested there (explicitely using English instead 
of System default) would help for GNUbg. On the other hand, I don't see 
anything special when using System default on a Windows 10 version 1709 
in French language.

Could you start the CLI, run this sequance of commands :

show lang
set lang C
set lang system
show lang
set lang C
set lang
show lang

and report the output of the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th commands ?
