Your problem is likely  relative neither to texworks nor to MiKTeX,
but to a change in LaTeX itself.
Since April 2018, it default the input encoding to UTF-8.
see https://www.latex-project.org/news/latex2e-news/

Legacy versions used 7-bit encoding, or various  8-bit encoding
(in Latex2e with  inputenc package)

If you don't already load inputenc,
  try adding \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} or \usepackage[latin9]{inputenc}
this could fix the problem.

An for future use, it would be better convert your files to utf-8.
