how to remove fonts that don't exist

    I'm running Windows 7 64-bit. My question is about removing fonts. The text
    entry box in Paint Shop Pro is disabled for some reason, and I think it
    happened when I installed a couple of fonts; one of them didn't work in PSP
    and it seemed to mess it up. The funny thing is, when I try to remove these
    fonts, they are NOT listed at all in c:/Windows\Fonts; I remember when I
    installed one of them it didn't actually appear in the Fonts folder when
    installation was complete. Yet both PSP and another program list these fonts
    as available to use. So how the hell do I remove fonts Windows tells me
    don't even exist on this system? I have checked and double checked the Fonts
    folder: the fonts in question are neither hidden, nor shown. Windows tells
    me they don't exist...but a number of programs I use, including Notepad,
    tell me they do, and not only that but they allow me to use them! I just
    want rid of them.

    Fonts show will show in the PSP listing (and are available to use without
    installing) when you have a folder with saved-but-not-installed fonts open.

    If the Text box in PSP is not working, it might be a problem with PSP.
    You could try to re-start PSP using the default settings.

    Try this:
    Save your Workspace (right-click in the workspace>Workspace>save (un-tick
    'include open images').
    Then close PSP, re-start it holding the Shift key down until your get a
    message box.
    This will re-set the program settings to the default state.
    Test the text.
    Re-load the saved Workspace.

    You will need to reset some General Program Preferences as those are not
    saved with the saved Workspace.
    File>Preferences>General Program Preferences is where you need to look.

    You didn't mention which version of PSP you use.
    You could also ask this question in the Corel groups. PSPPX2 is your best
    bet.

    If you can use the fonts, the fonts exist.

    When I right click on my desktop(anywhere) or open explore and try
    to do something, sometimes I am plagued with Explorer Crashing.

    I get the the following:

    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
    Application Name: Explorer.EXE
    Application Version: 6.1.7600.16385
    Application Timestamp: 4a5bc9bb
    Fault Module Name: ntdll.dll
    Fault Module Version: 6.1.7600.16385
    Fault Module Timestamp: 4a5be02b
    Exception Code: c000041d
    Exception Offset: 000000000003202d
    OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
    Locale ID: 1033
    Additional Information 1: 9443
    Additional Information 2: 9443349ccb6b4905045eb0c85d4eb538
    Additional Information 3: a354
    Additional Information 4: a3546b679f97a22582e5184a6c37d4c2

    Anyone had this and figured out what causes it? I can't duplicate it
    at will as it seems to be random when it happens. But once it
    happens it happens a lot till' i reboot:(

    Seems to be a boatload of ppl having this when you google it, but I
    have not seen any resolution to it.

    Cheers cj:)

    What does that have to do with how to remove fonts?

    I was bothered with that constantly in Vista. I hoped it wouldn't carry
    over to 7, but apparently they just decided to leave it alone and call
    it a feature.

    It's better to put this in it's own thread.
    Tagging along here, where the subject is quite different, just confuses
    things.
    The OP hasn't re-appeared, so the disappearing fonts will remain a mystery.
