Wow it worked , i freed some space without a mess. The only problem was with the browsers (IE and Firefox) opening, but with everything in black and screwed up. Fixed it after installed the Arial fonts, so beware people, don't delete the Arials.

LM,

It may be best to leave the ones that are not listed in the Fonts folder or registry alone.

Took the risk and deleted some but from the command prompt when using the Windows 7recovery option, is working good for now, but i don't encourage anyone to do it though. I don't know if it have to do with it, but now is using 1.03GB of mem, when the normal was 1.8 and up in my system.

So, what software exactly did you mean?

Fixer,

A program like the one Dennis posted above. You could also use something like WindowBlinds, but it's not free. There's all sorts of these type of programs available. You'll just need to see if they include the feature to change fonts as well, and try them out to see how you like it before buying it if it's not free.

Hello

I used the reg download and amended it to the font I wanted.It applied fine however when I go to personalize\window colour\advanced for some fine tuning the font entry is always empty.I can change to bold or italic just concerned the drop box is empty and not showing the font i chose.

Hello Danny,

I have not seen that before. Did you delete any fonts?
