Windows 7 Pro - Starts up with Wingdings as the default font
As the title states, every other day or so after being off for about 16 hours, when I start the computer, Wingdings is the default font.
I did complete computer scans with Avast, Malware Bytes and Microsoft Essentials. There is no virus or malware detected!
A search on the forum recommended the above and also suggested that the font registration goes bad when using Windows update while anti-virus is on. However, that scenario is allegedly only on Windows XP machines.
My cure is to merge a font registry fix and restart, then all is back to normal. I may end up doing a re-install, but would appreciate any suggestions or fixes that would do the trick for me.
