Changing Screen Format

I installed Virtuozzo from a SSH window instead of direct from a monitor. It let me but now applications that run are surrounded by odd characters like a line of a's and squares instead of ASCII corners and boxes. I cannot duplicate them here - they won't copy and paste. Oh wait, a picture:

How can I restore the monitor to what it should be. It's a pain to install the software and 100 miles away.

I've narrowed it down that I should not have installed an application with a GUI from a SSH shell. But not how to resolve the issue...
