Hello,

After reading a suggestion in
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...ows-7-ie/f180e803-3317-4433-8fd2-63aadaecc2d2
I've changed the following Registry values:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
"Segoe UI (TrueType)"="segoeui.ttf"
"Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)"="segoeuib.ttf"
"Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)"="segoeuii.ttf"
"Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)"="segoeuiz.ttf"
"Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)"="seguisb.ttf"
"Segoe UI Light (TrueType)"="segoeuil.ttf"
"Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)"="seguisym.ttf"

To-
=""

***
3 Questions:

1)
I couldn't find the value
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]
"Segoe UI"=

2)
The font and its size in some windows have changed, and some of the text is unavailable.

3)
Before the changes in the Registry, this was the font I got in Microsoft Forums:
http://i48.tinypic.com/c88ex.jpg
The view has improved after the changes:
http://i48.tinypic.com/iypw75.jpg

However I still have a problem in this page:
http://i46.tinypic.com/2zi24i9.png

The font in Microsoft Forums is Ariel, and in Mozilla it's Open Sans Regular.

***

I'd appreciate your help.

My interpretation of those registry values, without looking at the link you posted, tells me that all you've done is removed the references to the Segoe UI font, which means any program the relies on those values to tell them "where/what" the Segoe UI font is, are probably not going to function because they're being pointed to "" which is the equivalent of nowhere. If you want to change it to a different font, find the name of the font in C:\windows\fonts and put those in as the registry values.

The font in Microsoft Forums is Ariel, and in Mozilla it's Open Sans Regular.
Having removed the pointers to where that font may be found any application or system which references it will, on failing to find it, use its predefined default which will be specific to that application.

Thank you Mitchell_A and patcook. I appreciate your help.

I've solved the first 2 problems by adding the following code to the Registry.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]
"Segoe UI"="Tahoma"


I'd be grateful for a solution to the third issue.
