    Adobe causes an error when scrolling through fonts


    My Adobe causes an error when scrolling through fonts. It is because I have too many fonts and some of them are bad.

    How can I delete all my fonts and reset back to the original fonts in Win XP? Then, where can I find some legitimate fonts for graphic design?

    Your fonts are located in the C:\Windows\Fonts dir. Just delete what ever you don't want.

    Great place for fonts: www.dafont.com/en

    If you want to install a new font, it not such a good idea to just drag the font into your font folder, I first save the font in some temp directory. Then I go

    Start>Run>Type: c:\windows\fonts

    Click File>Install New Font...

    Then browse to the temp font directory. That's how you install fonts properly.

    Thanks.

    I think I installed so many fonts that some of them actually overwrote my original Windows default fonts... how can I get those back!?

    I haven't ever tried that before... Maybe look on the windows CD?

    Hey -- I checked out your site and noticed that you have made some cool games. Did you make those in C++? I would love to learn how to do that. Are there any good "gaming programmers" forums?
