Windows 7: MS Works-500 fonts Warning - Can't Delete Batang Font

MS Works-500 fonts Warning - Can't Delete Batang Font

Been getting warning of more than 500 fonts when opening a spreadsheet in Works for last few weeks - but not before ... haven't specifically added fonts (but may have been added by installing other programs). HOWEVER, when I went to Control Panel -> Fonts, it said I only had 483 fonts. I went ahead and tried to delete some fonts - BUT - couldn't delete Batang (& company) because it is a protected system font. I do not even speak "Batang".

I Google searched and found several instances but nothing helped. Some suggested modifying the registry (scary) ... others suggested hiding fonts ... but they all sounded like shots in the dark and no solid solutions. Any words of wisdom?

The warning is just that and doesn't seem to affect the spreadsheet processing.

Using a manual process, Batang (and all other 'system restricted' - and not used by me) font was deleted by going into the registry and permanently deleting.

Thanks everyone for the help.
