Windows 7: Bold Text Issue

Bold Text Issue

Hello.
As the title states, I'm having an issue with the display of my OS.
I know exactly how this happened, earlier I uninstalled 4200+ fonts by CTRL-A + DEL.
Now I'm aware that wasn't very bright, but one would think that Windows would not let you delete vital fonts, right?

Anyway, I've searched the forum and Googled for answers for this issue, I've tried a lot of the "problem-solvers" mentioned. I.e: Restore fonts to default settings via font folder, Adjust the ClearType text, run a system file scan (cmd sfc /scannow), make sure I'm not missing any important fonts (I'm not), switch themes, system restore to an earlier time, etc.

I don't know what the problem is now.

What were the results of SFC /scannow?

Do you have a backup from before to restore the fonts from?

"There was an issue with corrupted data that will be resolved after a reboot" or something along the lines of that.
No, I do not have a backup but I will re-check.
It turns out I'm actually missing the Times New Roman font family, I'm attempting to get that resolved now, which isn't going well.

Just tried everything, absolutely nothing worked.
I'm now very frustrated, this is just ridiculous.

EDIT:
I'm just going to system restore, sorry for wasting you guys' time and thank you for attempting to help, I appreciate it.
