The onus for spell checking falls onto the browser, not the OS.

Despite the mind boggling decision to still not include a built in spell checker for IE, ieSpell is a safe and decent add-on for IE, regardless of it's 3rd party status.

Hmm, my Win 7 installations have Ariel and Verdana - are you sure you don't have them?

Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Fonts
Yep. They are included by default.

Italicized and missing fonts are usually the result of un-installing an application that deletes certain fonts.
Nope. Not there. As I stated , the machine was fresh out of the box.
Think it may have been the Geek Squad that was supposed to have removed everything except the operrting system before I picked it up from them after purchasing the thing.

I've had to come behind these "pros" before. might be the case again.When i asked how he removed Norton he said he just ran the uninstaller. So there you go. He said he never knew of a norton removal tool.

Sigh. the stuff i get myself into.
Is there a list of fonts that come with windows 7 on the web anywhere that folks know of? I'll have to go through the whole fonts folder i guess. SFC turned up no issues.

In order to conform to the fascism of it all to avoid licensing issues I had to buy the fonts and install them which is rediculous if you ask me.

After all, these are very widely used fonts for web pages and programs.

I certainly cannot do what i have to do on my website without them.
You can download just about any font that you want from the internet, and Windows 7 can use it.
Yes but where? I cannot find any place that has them without charging you for them. Besides that, I have no idea which ones are actually missing. there could be more than just the two.
Just type "free fonts" into Google, and you will get over 18 million returns.

Not being from the states, I've never had the 'pleasure' of dealing with the Geek Squad etc, but I've never heard a single good thing about their 'tech' skills.


It's not an official list of fonts, but it should be a good starting point.

Windows 7 font list

The default font for Seven is Segoe UI and if you haven't changed it, chances are that's missing as well.

In the interim, attached are the Arial, Segoe UI and Veranda fonts from my freshly installed OS.

ARIAL VERANDA SEGOEUI FONTS.zip


Simply open the zip and copy the contents to your C:\Windows\Fonts folder (click OK for the prompts)

If the italicized fonts remain, go to:

Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization\Window Color and Appearance

and select the font you wish to use.

Thank you.

Those fonts were all missing and I only needeed to unzip and install so the latter was not necessary. I had actually just got done going through that very same list before i checked back here on my issue.

This is a very informative board, btw. lots of useful information.

Just read thrugh this thread and to me the answer to the OP's problems is very clear in this statement:

Why let someone else tinker with your new PC. If you wanted to get rid of the dross that comes with a preloaded PC then a straightforward re-install of the OS is the way to go. A little research before purchasing would have been time well spent. Easy to say with hindsight though!
