7 all the way!
 
 

im no expert but a quick google gives me this link GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DAT - Google Search

i clicked the first two links gdipfontcachev1.dat :: gdipfontcachev1.dat Removal Instructions and What is GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DAT? And how do I get rid of it? - Yahoo! Answers reveals that they may be spyware. i personally use superantispyware but lately i added malwarebytes to buff my security. it may be good to remove it immediately using these two softwares but you could also wait for more experienced users here.

Do you happen to use FrontPage or anything that has to do with fonts, or changing fonts?

GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DAT is usually created as a "font cache", or, in other words, a data storage file for fonts. Apparently, created usually by programs that are DotNet dependant.

I don't think it's that big of a deal, and whatever needs it may end up rewriting it anyway.
Did you delete it completely, or just move it to recycle? if it's still there, just restore it.

I'm not sure what it will effect. Maybe nothing.

I'm not positive if a system restore would restore that file or not, but it might be worth a try if you start to see any probems.

If you have a printer......reinstall the drivers and stuff for it, then check to see if the file was recreated.
