Windows 7: True Type--Problems

True Type--Problems

I recently reset the system to 'True Type' and did not like the appearance and turned off the True Type. However, I'm now left with applications that are still showing either parts of their software in True Type or all of their software's representation in same.

Examples of this problem are: Outlook, Bookmarked (on toolbar) Firefox pages, Explorer, and more.

Is there not a way to get rid of True Type once selected?!

Hi Mark. I know this is going to sound stupid and you've probably already thought of it but have you gone to Control Panel - Programs and Features and deleted it? Probably a dumb answer because I don't know what True Type is but thought I'd give it a try. OK looked up True Type and this is a dumb answer. So I can only suggest you press F1 and get the Help Search box and go from there. Try typing in 'disable' or 'shut off' True Type.

Try a System Restore.
If you went to True Type say this past Thursday pick a restore point from Wedneday. Try this first then we can go from there.

System Restore will not loose any info and will put everything back.
Just in case.
System Restore


You can try this also. Use option One. You may need to run up to three times to repair all files.
This is what we want to accomplish "back to it's default state".

Be aware that if you have modified your system files as in theming explorer/system files, running sfc/scannow will revert the system files such as explorer.exe back to it's default state. Make the appropriate backups of your system files that you have modified for theming if you wish to save them before running sfc/scannow.


SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

End of story--

Restore points only had one date choice (12:00 a.m. of the day I wished to make the change) despite checking the box to look for more (a point I will come back to).

sfc/scannow didn't help

I restored an Acronis image that was about a month old and between installing/uninstalling and copying from a separate data backup I'm back up to previous speed sans True 'junk'.

The question remains...why only one restore point with 30 GB clear space on the drive?

I'm not sure on the why on only one restore point.

Glad you have it back where you want.
Go ahead and manually make a new restore point now that it is working right.
I'll see what I can find on why it isn't making new ones automatically.

Check this. Only Windows 7 partition should be on. All others partitions OFF. You only make System Restore points of the OS partition.
You want system protection turned "ON".
It probably is set right but make sure.
System Protection - Turn On or Off

Then you can check and make sure everything is checked or unchecked properly here also.

System Restore Point - Create[2]=Backup Restore

If you want to make sure on actual space alloted. Which I think you may have alreeady done. Just making sure.
System Protection - Change Disk Space Usage

I hope something there helps.
