You may want to have a look at a totally free alternative Nexus Font manager which is similar in operation and works with Windows 7 - programs
just checked it out, it looks pretty nice. thx

You're welcome hope it helps you out.

What I do with fonts is I have a set of installed fonts that I use everyday and the others are kept off line on my data drive in a set of folders by style and type.

This keeps the overhead required by the OS to a minimum and keeps things running smoothly

Using the font manager I can easily visually browse and select then add and remove fonts from the active fonts folder as needed.

it does take a little time and thought to organise the fonts but once done it makes simple to use.

Some designers will create a folder for each project or client and load those fonts as the work on a particular job

Could you check your windows update history and see if there was anything being installed at the same time you were doing your fonts. The 100% notice would suggest to me that there was a windows update being processed.

The fonts folder that you see is a special windows system folder it is possible for this to not work correctly thus presenting incorrect information - the folder is set by default to automatically hide font variations such a bold and italic sometimes it may "get confused"

the Shell:fonts command opens the folder as a standard folder

I believe there is a tutorial in the tutorials section here that will allow you to reset all the special system folders to their correct settings
