Windows 7: I have all italics in IE8 & Outlook!!

Windows 7 64bit

Yup.. if you have bold or italic fonts in windows, and you've tried changing font settings but nothing works.. The problem is, the non-italic non-bold, plain jane, regular font has been deleted for whichever font you're using.

Windows 7 x64

I had this problem which I noticed while browsing a site using Arial. All Arial text was in italics.
I checked my Fonts folder and saw arial.ttf was there, but checking my registry showed that while the other variants of Arial were listed (italics, bold, narrow etc) regular Arial was not.

The fix was simple, in the registry under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts
add a new string value, give it the name Arial (TrueType)
and set the value to arial.ttf

Reboot and problem was solved.

updates in italics?
In Win 7 on this Netbook that I just installed on, some of the updates in Windows Update are in Italics, and some are not. What does this mean?
Windows Updates & Activation
Some how I managed to change Windows 7 Home to use italics in all the upper menu's of Office 2010 and other programs that use Windows 7 fonts. Is there a way to change the default font to be something other then italic. I have a hard time reading them sometimes. Thank you for your assistance Joe

Everything is in italics?
I have no idea, what the heck I did, but everything seems to be in Italics:huh: I don't know what the heck I did, and I thought about doing a system restore as I am not sure how the heck this happened. And I didn't change anything in the personalization themes section of Control Panel. Any ideas...
