Hi all,
A couple of months ago I was working on a logo design in Adobe Illustrator CS5 (I'm a graphic designer) when the power in my town cut out for a moment. It shut the computer down, and since then I noticed that it takes quite a long time for the machine to boot up... 5 or more minutes.

Also since then, every time I buy and install a new font it does not keep the font installed. I have to continuously reinstall them. Anything installed prior to that day is fine, but new fonts since then just won't stay put.

I'm using a Dell Studio XPS with Windows 7 Pro. Any help to solve these issues would be so very much appreciated. They waste a lot of my time.

Thanks!!

Okay, so the machine DOES keep the fonts installed. It's just that every time I restart the machine, my Adobe CS5 programs no longer recognize them. I have to close out of whatever program it is (Illustrator, Photoshop) find the font file and reinstall. Windows tells me that the font is already installed and asks if I want to reinstall. If I click OK and restart my program, the font is there.
