Windows 7: System-Wide font change issues

System-Wide font change issues

Hi guys. I need a little help. I am theming my computer and just got done with the icons (except for the system tray). I need to change the font system-wide and i have tried following a couple of tutorials which involved turning of clear type and turning off smoot font edges and i ran a script

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
"Segoe UI (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Light (TrueType)"=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]
"Segoe UI"="Equestria"

as a tutorial told me to. I don't have the exact link. Another one told me to alter registries for entries such as Segoe Bold etc which I could not even find. There was a normal Segoe which had been changed to Equestria. Can someone who knows about this please give me a hand?

I can see the new font on the login screen.
