Windows 7: font install problems

font install problems

Hi all.

I hope this is in the right section, I wasnt too sure.

I am having problems with installing a font on windows 7 64 bit. I have downloaded the font, and installed it by dragging it from the downloads and dropping it into the fonts folder. I have used the font using coreldraw (the only thing I use the computer for) and saved the document. When I return to the document and reopen it, I get a message stating that the font is no longer installed and offering an alternative. If I then open the font folder, sure enough it is not in there. However, if I then try to drag and drop the font from downloads back into the font folder I get a message stating that the font is already installed, and asking if I would like to replace it. If I choose to replce it, then I can open the document in coreldraw properly, but the next time I use the computer it is back to the initial problem again.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I should mention I am by no means very computer savvy, so any explanations would be appreciated in laymans terms where possible

thanks Jerry. Im wondering if it is maybe an incompatible font or something, as neither of those install options work. If I double click on the file it asks me to select the program that I want to use to open the file. How can I tell if this is the case?

My font was fine just a couple days ago, but now when I got to sites like Live Journal, the font is like some sort of defult font, not the one that is suppose to be there. When I check the same pages with firefox, the font looks like it should, but in IE8 is wrong. I've tried to figure this problem...
