PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:2002
Problem Application Name & Version:Windows XP Home
Problem Hardware Make & Model:AMD Athlon XP 1800+ 1.53 Ghz 348MB RAM
Error Messages:None



Sometimes when I boot up my computer all of the fonts have been changed to Marlett font with all the symbols and dashes etc. All other fonts are lost. I have McAffe antivirus running and have done several scans for viruses as well with F-Prot antivirus but they don't find anything. I have also ran Adware but it doesn't find anything other than the norml spyware. The only way to recover is to reinstall fonts from Office 2000 Prem (fonts are not correct for the ones used on the log in screen etc) and then do a system restore going back sevral weeks to find a good restore. Please help.

Know it's been a LONG time, but did you ever find a fix for this?

Suggest that you keep ALL of fonts in a different directory and check the box to NOT copy them to the usual spot when thay are installed.
That might prevent their being deleted.
Good Luck..

I ended up reloading Windows. It appears that there was some sort of virus on the computer because the take over would have on a timely order. I also traced it back to a hacker attack that was trying to use my computer to host. None of my antivirus would pick anything up so I wiped my computer clean and I haven't had a problem since. Thanks
