Windows 7: Error installing fonts

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Error installing fonts

I upgraded today from XP to 7 Professional. 90% of my fonts installed correctly, the others (of course the ones I use the most) keep saying they are not a valid font format. They are ttf and otf fonts. I have right clicked and gone into properties and deselected 'unblock'. I have right clicked and hit install. Double clicked and hit install, and tried dragging and dropping. They are not in a zip file. I have also tried reinstalling the font and done all of the above and getting the same error over multiple fonts. I have rebooted and done it all over again. Any help is appreciated.
