Windows 7: Browser Font possible corruption

29 Oct 2010   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64

I have the same problem, but can't cure it with what I've seen. The font is "Times New Roman", which displays on at least one site (NYTimes) in bold italic only. This happens in both Firefox and MSIE on this computer. I've tried reloading Firefox (no effect), reverting the computer to factory specs (ugh! clearing out all the adware again was a headache) which cured the problem for about 2-3 hours, and reloading a fresh copy of the Times New Roman ("TNR") font family downloaded from Microsoft. Because Win7 says this is a "protected system font" it won't let me do much with it, like drag all the TNR fonts out of the font folder so I could reboot and reload -- Win7 won't hear of it. Suggestions? Makes the website hard to read and really ugly! Thanks.
