Windows xp problem

Posted: 12-30-2008, 12:16 PM
Recently I did a spyware scan with a program I've used before, and accepted
the "repairs" it made and deleted the files. Well, upon reboot, it didn't.
Over and over it refused to reboot. Finally I got it up in safe mode and did
a "restore". Since then the fonts at appear in applications such as Skype,
and MS Access have changed. I cannot seem to get them back.

What might have changed in Windows that so significantly changes fonts in
other programs? I can change fonts in Access, but it doesn't look the same.
Any help would be appreciated. I would have postedt this to the Access forum
but it seems to be more general than that.

Please specify the program you've used before's name and purpose (Yes - it
does matter. In a sense you are not asking for help with Windows XP -
certainly not setup and deplpoyment - but with whatever 'damage' this third
party application diod and how you can undo it as easily as possible. If
the third party application is known - perhaps someone can point you in a
specific direction.)

And posting with his actual email address. Welcome
to spamorama. I guess people don't see any problem
with posting their address and phone number,as that's
already in the directory. They forget that the directory is
local, but this is world wide.
