Windows 7: Installed Tahoma font pack, now it won't go away in Aero

Installed Tahoma font pack, now it won't go away in Aero

Basically title. Above is how I remember it (took a screenshot from Google), below is how it is right now, with Aero installed (from scratch).

Can someone help me force an install of the original font, Segoe UI? I'm usually pretty good at this, but I had no idea what to google.

Return font smoothing in Windows 8.1, if it was disabled by this manual
Windows 7 ClearType - [1] :: Microsoft Windows :: Ru.Board

1) Remove Segoe UI from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ FontSubstitutes
2) Return to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop
FontSmoothing = 2
FontSmoothingType = 2
3) Apply Reg-file SegoeUI.reg, here are the contents

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Fonts]
"Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)" = "seguisym.ttf"
"Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)" = "segoeuii.ttf"
"Segoe UI Semilight (TrueType)" = "segoeuisl.ttf"
"Segoe UI Black Italic (TrueType)" = "seguibli.ttf"
"Segoe UI Light Italic (TrueType)" = "seguili.ttf"
"Segoe UI Emoji (TrueType)" = "seguiemj.ttf"
"Segoe UI (TrueType)" = "segoeui.ttf"
"Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)" = "seguisb.ttf"
"Segoe UI Light (TrueType)" = "segoeuil.ttf"
"Segoe UI Semilight Italic (TrueType)" = "seguisli.ttf"
"Segoe UI Black (TrueType)" = "seguibl.ttf"
"Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)" = "segoeuiz.ttf"
"Segoe UI Semibold Italic (TrueType)" = "seguisbi.ttf"
"Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)" = "segoeuib.ttf"

Just followed this. Worked.
