I was working on cleaning up my PC to increase speed. This is the article I used: http://www.mahalo.com/how-to-make-your-computer-run-faster

After I deleted a number of fonts, along with the other steps, the computer runs very fast now. The problem is, the article didn't warn about deleting fonts that should remain on a PC. Now my text looks odd and I need the fonts back. Fonts are deleted and do not go to the recycle bin.

I tried one of those free retrieval programs but it was too complicated.

Any suggestions?

Find a font downloading site. Like for Photoshop or word. Either way, as long as you have Times New Roman saved on your comp as a font file, it'll be accessed by Word.

It's happened to me before.

How many system fonts do you think you deleted and what OS are you running?

About 39 fonts. I have 59 fonts left and none of those I could delete anyway. It said that I would need permission to delete them.

Windows Vista.

I don't have Vista but I could send you all my XP Pro and Win7 Pro fonts. Vista will use them new or old. Let me know and I'll upload them to Megaupload or something.

This may help too.

I tried this on the vistasforums:

"1) Goto to Control Panel --> Fonts

2) Right-click and select Install Font

3) Select C:\Windows\Fonts and select all !!!BUT HERE, SELECT c:\Windows\winsxs INSTEAD!!!

4) Select install"


I did the first part of 3) and now have 122 fonts but my text didn't change.

I tried use winsxs but there were no fonts except huge amount of files showed below the winsxs.

Was told to look for my Windows Vista installation disc. I looked all over and cannot find it anywhere.

Couldn't play Netflix on my PC because there were two fonts that were needed.

This font issue may also be the reason I can't get a Netflix stream on my Epic from the Playon App.

either find someone to zip up their fonts folder and send it to you, or torrent the vista cd and extract it from there.
