    I want to add some new fonts to Windows 2000 Professional. I access the font folder, click on file and then click on add new font. I then have to select the drive the new fonts are located in. (drive a in this case on a floppy disque) The problem is the drive box has no drives listed in it. Why would that be?

    I'd give this a shot, from Start > Run, enter:

    regsvr32 /i shell32.dll

    I entered regsvr32/ishell32.dll and a box came up that said it can't find that or it is missing one of it's components. I wonder if I can repair this with my system restore.

    You said you have Windows 2000 -- no system restore built in.

    Check the command line and try again; there is a space that has to be in the line before and after /i:

    regsvr32 /i shell32.dll
