Find a friend with either a "retail" Windows XP Home Edition CD-ROM disk,
or with an 'OEM' ("original equipment manufacturer") equivalent.
Use that disk, plus the 25-character product-key on the label on the side of your computer,
to reinstall Windows, or first to try to "repair" your installed copy of Windows.
Or, if you have a "brand-name" computer (Dell, HP, IBM, Lenovo, Acer, Gateway, eMachines)
telephone the manufacturer, and order a replacement "System Restore" set of CD-ROM disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier.

well copying the files may be the problem! for instance you need a recovery cd or dvd if you made one and use that to reinstall ur OS like the day you bought it!
try making or getting a windows installer disc then either install ur original OS like home or professinal or use the repair feature that shoud install all the drivers and .dll file you need
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.
