Python Field Calculate issue

I am trying to use python inside of ArcMap to perform a field calculation. I am attempting to replace one word with another in my hyperlink field. My issue is that when I run the field calculator it replaces the words correctly, but it also changes the '\0' into little squares or question marks. I have tried using code blocks and writing the syntax differently but I keep getting the same result.
