Windows 7: After installing a font it appears everywhere on other websites.

22 Feb 2015   #1

Windows 7 32-Bit
After installing a font it appears everywhere on other websites.

After installing Helvetica Neue font onto my PC (Win7) it now appears almost everywhere online in the interface of websites.

I installed Helvetica Neue recently onto my PC and ever since that font is being used on most websites I visit, and even in the google website's troubleshooting settings. Ive also noticed the font used for the number of likes on a likebox on my website has changed and is all being displayed in Helvetica. It is very annoying and I have no idea how to resolve this issue. I have attached some examples. Thanks for reading.
