Font Problem

I'm having a problem with some programmes displaying text in the wrong font. This is causing text in some applications to no longer fit in the buttons that they are assigned. This is particularly evident in Norton SystemWorks and Internet Security, but is also noticeable when visiting google. I'm not sure how I should go about correcting this. I'm running Windows XP.

Any ideas?

I recently installed a new printer.

Right Click on desktop, select Appearance tab. Bottom box is for Font Size, set this to Normal or Small.

Hope this helps

It's already set to Normal.

Has anyone got any other ideas?

Go into Internet Explorer/ tools/ Internet Options and click the box called Fonts at the bottom of the General tab.
Try Times New Roman in the Left panel and Courier New in the Right Panel.
Some of the fonts listed are physically larger than others and also have different character maps.

That's what they're already set to.

What would cause the fonts in Norton SystemWorks to be dispalying incorrectly?

Font problems arise if the specified font (of the program) has been deleted. Windows tries to substitute something similar. If a vital system font has been deleted, havoc can ensue. Have any fonts been deleted?

Don't know how to correct it if they have but at least it might explain what has happened and someone else can offer a solution.

I had considered the possibility of a font having been deleted, but I haven't done this. Could the recent printer have had any effect?

If a deleted font is that cause, what would be the best course of action?
