    On larger images, you would need to continue to click on them until they are full size.

    Well the victory was short lived. While it's nice to have the font list in a manageable condition, this new "issue" has arisen.

    When the PC boots, after you log in, things go into limbo and stay there before the desktop appears.
    (actually you get the desktop background and the taskbar, but nothing else on the desktop)

    If you hover the mouse over the taskbar or start button you get the circular hourglass thingy, if you click the start button/orb/thing you get the dialog in the attached pic below.
    Microsoft Windows
    The application is not responding. The program may
    respond again if you wait.

    Do you want to end this process?
    I have tried selecting "End Process" and the desktop immediately appears... woohooo!.

    I've tried Ctrl-Alt-Del into Task Manager and trying to identify what's hanging but can't, I've even tried selectively ending processes of non system critical things but no joy.

    Eventually I went back and re-imaged the drive to the state it was in before I started this font thing..... bummer, it was looking promising, but oh well. Not everything can be tweaked I suppose.

    Same problem as CCBOB. Batang, Hebrew... all of the foreign fonts display this message: (font) cannot be deleted because it is a protected system font. When I go to a command prompt to remove ALL the attributes (because you can't do it in Windows) the action is denied. Doesn't work in safe mode either. Most irritating.

    Same problem with the fonts installed by CS5. Don't want them. Don't need them. Can't delete them 'cause I get the same error.

    Installed Take Ownership. Works on most folders EXCEPT Fonts. Doesn't even show up. I don't want to have to edit the Registry I want to delete fonts. Last step to try.

    Once the file is removed from the registry, can it be deleted from the Window/Fonts folder? We'll see.

    Primary question is why are any of the fonts put in the Windows/fonts folders made system fonts (some I understand like the .fon fonts which the system does have to have).

    Hello Pirahnya, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    The Fonts folder is a system folder, so any font installed into it just becomes protected as well by default.

    I don't use CS5, but did you check to see if you could remove the fonts through CS5 settings since it added them?

    Ah, but I do use CS5. It's just irritating that it installed without my knowledge and they shouldn't *HAVE* to installed for the program to work. I like to have my fonts folder trimmed down to under 150 fonts, but CS5 has put it over 300 (including family (ttc) fonts).

    Did find that doing the registry changes does remove them from loading and they don't even show up in the fonts folder anymore (?).

    And thank for letting me know about any font put in the fonts folder becomes a protected system font. Explains why my font manager (AMP) won't uninstall them.

    That's great news James. I'm happy to hear that you were able to remove them from the Fonts folder. :)
