I have MANY fonts that seem to have been installed when I downloaded and installed various icons, all of them being from Japan. There are approx. eight of them. When I try to uninstall those fonts from within FX I'm told that those fonts are 'temporarily installed', 'their file locations are not known' or that 'they can't be used for that kind of operation'. All of this and I'm still able to actually USE the fonts in question!

Every time I use a particular graphics program and even HOVER over any of these fonts the program just crashes! I really NEED to be able to get rid of them and am baffled as to how. Can someone please help me?! Thanks in advance.

Perhaps you are the person who e-mailed similar question a few days ago? I sent you reply, did you try my suggestions?

Are you sure you have the same problem, or only similar problem to first part of the post? If so, it is explained in the program documentation that you can open by pressing Help button in the error message that tells you that Font Xplorer is unable to delete the fonts.

Things to try:

1) Tools | Repair Wizard (with default options). This can find invalid font entries in the registry. If found, you'll need to restart Windows for the new settings to take effect.

2) Close all programs, then open Fonts applet from Windows Control Panel. Find the font names that you want to remove select them and choose File | Delete.
