    I've downloaded a font, and it's not showing up in the fonts list of any programs.

    The font folder (I'm using Win98) is very strange, there's no Install New Font option and none of the buttons my desktop computer (Win 95) has in the font folder, it just looks like a regular folder.

    All the fonts are listed by their file names rather than their recognisable font names (was already like that I think, this is just the first time I've tried to install a font).

    There's a file in it called Desktop.ini that isn't in the folder in Win95.

    I installed the font on the Win95 computer with no problem.

    Right, anybody know what to do to solve this?

    Download Microsoft's Tweakui from Here

    install following the instructions and start it up from your control panel.

    There is a repair tab and one of the things that can be repaired is the font's folder.
