Windows 7: Fonts manager?

Fonts manager?

Hi, I would like to remove or temporarily disable fonts that I do not use.

There used to be a program that backed them up, but seems to be no longer available.

I would like to be able to activate some of them. But would like to not have them all load at windows start, and in things like Gimp.

Anyone know of a utility that works in W7?

Thanks.

Great, that's just what I'm after doing. Sorry, I did search the forums for "fonts" but didn't see that guide.
The Amp Font Viewer seems to be just a viewer and installer. So the guide will fit my needs perfectly, thank you.

Edit, Just hid all the fonts I didn't want, and now Gimp loads in about a second instead of the 15-20 it was before. Nice, exactly what I was after
