I have had this dell pc for a year. I had a ton of opentype fonts installed on here as I am a graphic designer. All of a sudden I notice none of my OTF files are in my photoshop list..I checked the windows/fonts folder and not there either. I try installing new OTF files and it says "not a valid font file"
Here is the kicker..I converted my OTF files to Truetype and when I install them windows says its already installed, but you look at the list and nothing there. I have tried everything, read all the forums..here is what I have done
I am logged on as admin. I removed my kids account so there is only one account (admin account)
I updated my graphics card (read that can be an issue)
I have changed the UAC to never notify
When I click on the font properties there is NO box that says unblock (read that on this site)
I sent the file to a friend, they installed fine, so its not a corrupt file.
I just don't understand how they were installed and working fine and now they are not and I cant even add new OTF files.
Anyone have another suggestion?
Dell wants me to pay 240 bucks for a software warranty to tell me how to fix it
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Dell Inspiron 560s
NVIDIA GeForce 310
Thank you to anyone who has a suggestion...im at my wits end and I really need these fonts for design.
