Are these Windows fonts or a 3rd party fonts?
What program are they affiliated with?

I have not installed any font third party programs so i am assuming regular windows, how would i find what they are affiliated with?

Thanks

What program are you using to find these files?
You could also reboot and see if those files are still there.

I highly recommend not removing anything until you find out what they are.

Revo Uinstaller Pro is what i found them in when i ran junk files finder, they just popped up recently because i have always cleared temp files but these don't go away even when they are considered junk.

It is because they are currently being used. Leave them alone. There is no reason to delete them.

Right click on one of them. There will be several option you can use to find out what they are.
Open
Search Google
Open container folder
Properties

I use Revo but like any kind of program that removes things you should/must know what you are removing and why.
You just got over the computer from hell with a infection. Lets not start another computer from hell by removing things that shouldn't be removed.
They are probably fonts use by windows or another legit program.

I wish there were more productive answers then leave it alone. The below is why i want to get rid of it, i decided to ask people who have more experience than me because the page is no longer being monitored .


Now remember, i tried all of this to no avail.

Why is it burning my CPU?
The Presentation Font Cache loads all fonts into its font cache (which is stored on your hard disk, but more on that later). However, at some point, this cache may become corrupted and unreadable due to a specific font. Then, the Presentation Font Cache will start to become unresponsive and get caught in a “I try to launch, but I’m stuck, so I will try it again” loop. That’s what causes the incredibly high CPU usage, and what may even result in a sudden shutdown due to overheating. Luckily, there are a few solutions to this problem!

Solution #1: Delete the font cache file
The font cache is located under the following folder: %windir%\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local. Simply hold down the WIN key on your keyboard and press “R”. Then, enter the path above and click “OK”. Delete all the “FontCache…dat” files you find, such as “FontCache-System.dat” or “FontCache3.0.0.0.dat”.

This will cause the WPF font cache to rebuild itself. However, if the problem persists, you might need to shut down the WPF font cache permanently.

[/SIZE]Install unlocker, right click the file and unlocker may be able tell you what's using the file. It should also provide an option to delete the file at the next boot - but be aware that things could go wrong, if you do that.

Also be aware that Windows will probably rebuild them - toot sweet Caching is a technique that all operating systems use to improve performance.

They are only 320Mb why are you worried about them?

Addenda : I missed the fact that the quote in post 8 explains why you wanted to delete them - pity that source didn't tell you how - I think the above suggestion will help.

It would help if you posted a link to the thread where the quote came from, so that we had the context of the problem your trying to solve.

I don't understand this from you post #8.
I wish there were more productive answers then leave it alone.
You have not posted any problems with your computer.
You have been given instruction how to find out what these files are.
You have been advise until you know what they are don't delete them. (Leave them alone)
You have been told they are probably in use by Windows or a legit program. When and if you research them as instructed you find out what they are.
You have posted a quote and don't indicate where the quote came from or if you are having the same problem the owner of the quote had.
If you want to remove them because a 3rd party program indicates they are bad or not needed then do it. It's your computer.
But I will not instruct you to do so with the information I see.
