Can not delete fonts.. Help

Are you sure they're not deleting? The font manager in Windows 7 is notoriously bad at not refreshing! If they really are still there then try moving them to a non-system folder instead.

Incidentally the 'photoshop hates new fonts' problem is much discussed elsewhere eg. Pixel2Life Forum > photoshop cs3 crash on startup
