Windows 7: What's wrong with my fonts?

What's wrong with my fonts?

When I open a web page or a program the fonts they look weird. When using IE8 the fonts are bigger and in bold format. When I type in the google bar, the results are shown in italic format.

Not only that but when I use Skype, the same problem again. What can I do guys? I tried using regedit.exe and even that couldn't help me.

It sounds like you have somehow removed some core Windows fonts. ie uninstalling an app etc.

Tahoma normal is now being shown as Tahoma Bold, Arial normal is now arial italic etc.

Got to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Fonts and see if those fonts are still there. If not:

unzip and copy the attached fonts to the C:\Windows\Fonts directory to see if restores everything back to normal.
