There's more! I asked #2 son what was that program that
took out the fonts. McAfee QuickClean he says. So I did a
search on the Mc Forums and look I famous! I've obviously
posted this before!
For getting out of the default "Marlett" symbol font..
I used "Ian Ridgers" fix, and it this works!:
When you look in the Windows/fonts folder from Windows
explorer you are NOT looking at the folder on the hard
disk, you are actually looking at the registry entry. That
how you can see the names of the fonts not the file names.
Unfortunately Quickclean removes this info from the
Registry so you see a blank. Ironically the font files are
still there and if you open a DOS window and CD
\windows\fonts you can see them. Right, now if you go back
to Explorer and 'reinstall' the fonts it tries to put them
in the registry and put them in the Dir and make them
available to windows all that the same time. Somehow it
seems to be successful and works for the rest of that
session, because Explore has 'made the fonts available' to
the windows session BUT it has NOT been able to put them
in the Registry because the
sion\fonts] has been deleted by QuickClean and is not
there. Consequently if you look at fonts again in
Explorer, which is looking at the Registry, there is
nothing to see! When you re-start your machine it is looks
at the registry to reload the fonts NOT the FONT dir and,
as there is nothing in the registry nothing is loaded and
you are back to square one. The solution is very very
simple! In a dos window copy all your fonts to a
new 'junk' directory. In dos delete the fonts in
c:\windows\fonts (as many as you can anyway). Then, using
Regedit.exe (found in Windows dir) open up
ion\ and via EDIT/NEW/KEY add the missing 'Fonts' entry.
Now back to Explorer again and open C:\Windows\fonts and
via [File/install new fonts] open your 'junk' dir and
select all. Once the action has finished you should see
all the fonts in explorer and even if you go up a level
and come back again they should still be there. If they
are you've fixed your machine if not then I don't
know!!!!! I admit the biggest difficulty here is that a
lot of the activity in Explorer has to be done with
graphics rather than letters. I suggest the 'Junk' file is
named 'font font' because you can spot the repetition and
you know which one it is!
locally installed software (Norton 2002 current dats) and online (Trend, Mcafee, Panda, Symantec) and they all come up clean. Clearly, *something* is going into the registry and deleting the registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts, but the question is WHAT Any feedback would be much appreciated [email protected]

I'm using XP Home, and my dialog boxes have suddenly changed to Spanish instead of English. Anyone know whats going on?.Si. Sounds like one of your 'Regional Settings' has been changed. If you didn't do it, then maybe a adware/spyware program did it.

. I have followed all instructions in MS KB 132668 "Icons randomly change to different icons", with no success. In the last step, when changing the registry value to 2000 did not work, I changed it to 4096 (max value), with no difference. The only thing that is different about my computer this morning from last night is that last night I installed Diskeeper and ran a defrag. I have
tried to change under appearance, but the only option it gives me is Windows Classic Style--which is gray. I have done a restore point back to before each item was installed to see if it changed back colors, but no luck. I did a restore point all the way back before any programs/drivers were installed -- it still stays gray. Any suggestions or information would be appreciated. I don'

;ve tried a System Restore but it will not work in either Safe Mode or fromHi again . looking at some other posts, it looks like the problem is that some of the fonts have disappeared from the windows/fonts directory. I have a couple computers, so just transferred fonts in from one to the other. And that seems to take care of the problem on my machine. I'm guessing Windows uses some
account and delete the extra account you created. I just tried it by resetting my accounts to limited,went to safe mode,account administrator,created an account called abc,adm. privilage,rebooted,went into it and changed all the accounts back from that one,then deleted it.(don't save any files from it when it ask you or you'll have double of some files on every screen name
RAM at startup or logon. Does anyone know if this is true (for Win-XP)? I have 912 fonts (!). I certainly don't use many of these in common editing, but it is hard to (or maybe a W95 thing).
