Fonts missing Some Windows XP fonts were deleted in error. Where can I download replacement fonts? For example, when I view certain web pages, the type is small comic sans bold, which is almost unreadable to me.

Re: Fonts missing

Try a system restore to a time previous to that where the fonts were deleted. Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore That should do the trick. If not, do a repair install on your partition with a Windows XP disc, that would also solve your problem - but try the system restore first. Good luck.

I understand that you are having issue with the fonts in windows 7 64 bit operating system. You can restore the default font and remove any changes that you've made to your display settings from Appearance and Personalization.
Here's how:

a. Open Fonts by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts.
b. In the left pane, click Font settings.
c. Click Restore default font settings.


This also removes all manual changes that you've made to your display settings.

Overcoming Font Overload in Windows

We all like to install fonts however when the number gets above 1,000 your PC will start to SLOOOW down loads this will also slow down programs that use system fonts like Adobe Photoshop so it's a good idea to keep the number of installed fonts below 400. If you do this you will find your system and programs will start faster and run much smoother.
Does this mean you have to give up all your favorite fonts? Not necessarily... There are a few things you can do to have the best of both worlds. The best way is to use a fontmanager there are a few here are some of the best

Britannica 2012 ultimate hangs up at folder d;\data\media2-data does not move stuck there for 3 hr anyone help with this problem running windows xp home thanks for any help

It sounds like you are trying to install some fonts, and trying to install a lot of fonts can get a little tricky. also sounds like you are transferring these from a DVD? The following should help:
first lets create a new folder on the desktop, call it something like "britannica fonts 1"now try just transferring a portion of the fonts to your desktop into the newly created folder.ok, once those have finished moving from the DVD to the desktop go ahead and drag and drop those .ttf files from the desktop to the windows fonts folder.repeat this step until they're all installed. you can delete the desktop files afterwards. The fonts are installed now and won't be going anywhere .

I have hindi fonts in my system but cann't type.It always show spelling error. can't open hindi sites also


Please try to download and setup the Hindi Shusha Fonts fonts as described below:

  1. Need to download the following three Shusha font files to your machine:

    click on each of the following links, one by one.

    But, before clicking, read the following ...

    In the best case scenario, your browser would first ask you if you want "open" or "save" the file that is to be downloaded. Choose "save". Your browser then would open up another window allowing you to select the folder where "save"ing is to take place. Select the folder C:\WINDOWS\FONTS and let the process begin. Go to step 3 below.

    In the worst case scenario, your browser downloads the file, modifies the name of the file by appending some characters to the original name of the file, and stores it on your disk in some "Temporary Internet Files" folder! You are given no opportunity to select the folder of your choice, and you have no idea where the file is stored on your disk! All you may see, after the download, is a window with shusha font characters (the font file in an opened state) with two buttons on the top, one labeled as "Done", and the other as "Print". If that happens, just click on the "Done" button on that window. But, you are not done yet! You need to find where the file is!
    If we are lost and do not know where the downloaded file is on hard disk, how do we find out where it is? One way is to use the "Find" utility. (Click on "Start", found on bottom left of your screen, then "Find", then on "Files or Folders...", and then typing filename-to-find in the "Named:" box. For example, you can type "Shusha*" if you would like to have the list of all files whose names begin with "Shusha")

    The scenario, between the best and the worst, is when all downloaded files automatically go to some preselected folder like "Desktop" or "My Download Files". In that case, you need to make a note of the folder name.

    The three Hindi Shusha Font Files:
Now click on each of the following links, one by one and save them in the C:\WINDOWS\FONTS directory.


  1. Once these three files are on your machine, they must be placed (copied or moved) in window's font directory:
    How do we do that? Well, there are always more than one way to do the same thing. Simplest way, probably, is to use Windows Explorer (the File Manager) program.
    Open the Windows Explorer program (its icon is a blue color magnifying glass placed on a yellow folder).
    Locate the three files you have downloaded.
    One by one (or all three together), select the file, and right drag (right mouse button kept pressed while dragging) the three files into the window's FONTS directory. Right drag would open up a small menu providing choices for either copying or moving the file or even canceling the operation. You may either choose to copy or to move the files.
  2. You should now make sure that your Shusha fonts are in the FONTS directory. Restarting the machine to make your new fonts operational may not be necessary, but it could be the last resort. Usually, Refreshing or closing/reopening the program (program like Windows Explorer) does the trick. If you do not see the Shusha font files in FONTS folder, try closing and reopening the Windows Explorer program.
  3. Check out the programs like Word or FrontPage. Look into the list of all fonts in these programs to see if our Shusha fonts are included there. If yes, we got it made!
  4. Now you are ready to write your own poetry in Hindi Shusha Fonts!
    In Word or in FrontPage, select Shusha font from the list of fonts.
    You have a English Keyboard that is meant for English alphabet. You have to use this keyboard, but you want to produce Hindi characters. No problem! What you need is a little "Mapping" help! How about having a KeyBoard Layout to produce Hindi characters?

    Click here for the map of keyboard layout picture.
  5. and the map should open up on your screen. You can have this page printed, so that you can keep it attached to your computer. And if you love Hindi, it will not take long to get used to this "Mapping"!
Hope this helps.

If you would like to vote for the answer, this will help the others to see the similar problems solved and also will be a satisfaction factor for me to continue helping you.

All the best.

I am running Microsoft Works 8. I am not running vista. I have XP Media Center Edition version 2002 SP2 Word processor will not open, nor will previously created documents. this seemed to have...

I have my doubts that the installation of OpenOffice was the problem.

Having said that i now need to say that if you opened any of the Works files with open office and then saved them, it saves in its own format unless you stipulate to save the file in the works format. You may already know this and i am telling grammy how to make cup cakles. it is just that I am an avid user of OO and works on my own PC and to date never had a problem with either being in the same environment.

Having it report about FONT cache sounds like a font was used in OO that is not recognised by Works so it throws a hiccup. Have you got a file you can share with someone local that was created with works on your PC that you can ask someone else to open and see if it throws a fit when asked to open it?

I have also visited to see if thyere are any known conflicts with MSWorks but there are non listed I can see.
