    Right before the downtime yesterday, i downloaded a huge pack of fonts ( most of witch are useless). Since then my computer has greatly slowed down ( especially photshop, right clicking anything, wordpad ect). Is there anyway to reformat my font folder? I'm a newb to all this stuff and need to revert back to all my original fonts. Please Help

    do u have a program on your pc called "System Restore". if u do then just use that to revert your drive back to before u ever installed them

    2.5 gigs worth of Enterprise footage for a fanfilm
    500MBs of Alizée Videos from the AF hub

    I don't think the fonts are what's lagging your photoshop b/c you have not yet installed the fonts into your directory and so it think it would be your 2.5 gigs worth of fanfilm along with the 500MBs as the fonts are smaller than that size so most likely it's your enterprise footage and try running a disk defrag and disk cleanup to see if that helps

    You could delete most of the fonts outright. I have over 1g of fonts but I almost never install them. I use them simply by opening them on my desktop before I open PS and then PS recognizes them. Installing too many will slow the pc way, way down.

    You can manually delete any and all fonts from your windows/fonts folder. Jus highlight, rt click delete.

    You might wanna do a little google search first and see which ones are default. Keep those and delete the rest and you'll be back up to speed.

    Nvrmind, here is the list.

    If you run the System Restore, it will only delete any PROGRAM you installed, which means that any file like videos will not be affected. I would go ahead and do the System Restore.

    it's already in the programs...go to start>accessories>system tools and select system restore and a date you want to go back to if you have any checkpoints.

    why would you use system restore? its for nubs anyway...

    C:\Windows\Fonts\ right click an empty space, click View-- Details. Then sort by date modified. Your default fonts would be the oldest, while custom ones would be newest. Sometimes this might not be true, like if your custom fonts were made before the default windows fonts (which i doubt). so check which ones your are deleteing before you do.

    this might help to http://www.wpdfd.com/editorial/xpfonts.htm :P
