Sorry, but none of those helped. In the registry I noticed the font (Helvetica) is Arial, like this

Does this matter? I also changed the 'MS Shell Dlg 2' to match the first one.

The other funny thing is, I decided to uninstall it because I don't need it anymore, and it isn't even in my 'Fonts' folder in Windows. I searched my C:\ drive for the font, and the font came up in the Sims 3 directory, but deleted them anyway.
Should I delete the registry keys and see if that helps?

I'm really out of ideas. Anyway if you're planing to delete that registry entries,remember to create backup of them.

I got the fonts back to normal, accept it wasn't in 'FontSubmission' it was in 'Fonts'. I deleted the keys for the font, and I have soundcloud and twitter looking normal again!
