    Hi, is has been brought to my attention that limiting the number of fonts can speed up the running of the computer.

    How can I find out how (number of) many fonts I have, which ones are critical for Windows operation, and which ones can I delete safely?
    I'm running win98se.

    Thank you in advance

    Have a look at this article. It should offer some guidance on what to do. This will only speed up the startup process and not the actual running speed.

    You know I never gave Language Character differences a thought when I supplied the link...Sorry!
    At this point I do not know how to advise you.

    Maybe someone else will pop in.

    If you don't know (or don't plan to) know hebrew why waste the space on your HD?

    I will take your post as not realizing that Sebastian is Israeli thus Hebrew would be applicable and because of your oversite I will not remove what appears to Me to be a derogatory statement. Please rephrase your answer accordingly!
