Well, it was already gettin sluggish since i had so many fonts installed and i assume it was still indexing but i couldn't tell to after the win update happened it asked to restart i said ok and on restart after the starting windows screen it started to hang.
it was stuck on a black screen for like 2 minutes before it even showed anything. then it came up saying 100% update completed then shutting down. it restarted and same thing except it froze goin into the logon screen and i don't even have a pass setup. then finally on boot i decided i didn't want the dvd maker app and removed a few things like the printer svcs including xps reader/printer. also a few preloaded games, and i think a few other things.
it restarts.....same thing, taking forever to start up after starting windows splash. now im up and for like 5 minutes my svchost.exe was counting up into the 80k usage and my whole cpu was at 50-60% when nothing was even happening! the indexing service was at about 50k and explorer was 40k. then finally came to norm. so i'm at 0-1%.
I also went to update again and it says live essentials update failed. Isn't that what it was doint initially after first reboot that caused my hangup?? I checked even viewer and it said a couple times The NVIDIA Display Driver Service service has reported an invalid current state 32 code 7016. Also mentions an improper shutdown, and a couple security warnings. What could cause this? Safe to turn off indexing? Too many fonts possible? Sorry for the story!!! lol
Unless you're a graphic designer, there is no reason at all to have more fonts installed above the defaults. If you are a Graphic Designer, then you'd be familiar with programs like Corel Draw.
Corel Draw includes a program called "Bitstream Font Navigator". With it, you can install or remove fonts with a few mouse clicks, and when you open a Corel Draw file that uses a font that is not installed, it offer to install it for you before the file is fully opened.
Perhaps you needs a similar program, although I am unsure as to whether or not "Bitstream Font Navigator" is available seperately....
Other than that, there is really no need at all for any extra fonts.
