    Type of Problem: System Font Change

    I was in the 'Font' folder within 'Windows' directory deleting some font files.
    While shredding some, one file that I erased changed my whole layout on how my window font looks.
    Everything that I see within IE, My Explorer, Folders... Everything looks small.
    The text representation has change and it's hurting my eyes!
    I revived all the files that I shredded and put them back in the 'Font' folder.
    I hoped that when I restarted my computer, everything would turn back to normal.
    =( but everything was the same as before.
    How do I restore the original font signature that windows had?

    I thank you for the additional information.
    Although much knowledge has been learned today, the ability to change the font within the System Presentation still exist.
    Now, I realize I have the ability to add without actually adding a font with windows so it can appear with any document, but the primary concern still is very much alive.
    The whole layout on how everything looks has changed.
    Meaning that every lettering that windows displays is in a different font, and not showing as its' primary.

    To my first response: The link does not work, microsoft is telling me that the article cannot be found.

    To my second response: Much knowledge is learned, but it still does not teach me how to rectify my current situation.
    It is a possibility that I may have read the whole thing wrong and missed the answer?

    I would really like to know how this happened.
    If windows can change on how everything looks, then there must be a way to remodify it without executing an unneccessary scanreg /restore or re-initializing windows.
