what Mark and in a more verbose way Johnny are trying to tell you, is

1) the first problem is to figure out how and why these files arrived on 
your system's disk with such names, and if possible correct that.
They are not normal names for files, and could give you any kind of 
trouble in the future, such as when you will try to do a backup of your 
server, or list them in directories, or sort the filenames 
alphabetically, or access them via DAV or Samba, etc.. etc..

2) changing the URIEncoding on your server to UTF-8 is also not 
something you should just do lightly and unilaterally, because you may 
then have problems with browsers who will *not* send request URI's as 
UTF-8.  By default, most browsers will not, so unless you know and 
control who is going to access your server with what and from which 
pages, you are probably creating an even bigger problem for the future.
