spurious fonts on new Win 7 installation

I have a new Win 7 installation on a new hard drive that was done by a commissioned computer tech.

I noticed that I have many, many fonts that I do not recognize or, presumably, need. They are all Asian or foreign fonts with names like "Arabic Typsetting," "Batang Che," "Aparajita", "DFMincho," "DFKai" and "DFKaiSho," "DokChampa" and "DotumChe." To name a few in the first quarter of an alphabetical list.

Can I safely get rid of these?

All fonts you listed are default in win7. Would not advise to delete. You might just have a program that uses one of them.
