I was calling my problem SYSTEM default Fonts. I now think that I meant WINDOWS default Fonts. I assume these are different things,,,, or are they ?
I managed to get onto e-bay and 99.9% of that was alright, apart from the Buttons (delete / relist etc) which were in wingdings.
I did a search on these pages and saw that for a similar problem, someone suggested trying: run > rstrui.exe. I tried this and it took me to the Restore page. Although I couldn't read the message/s, I did manage to restore to 23rd Sept, which looked like it was the only restore point that I had.
I am trying to see a list of Restore Points like I used to see in XP, but – stupidly – I can’t find the list. I have created one today, to give me something to look for. Surely I have more Restore Points Where is this list please ?
*Incidentally, my Son runs Vista and also doesn’t have any Restore Points. When an IT guy was looking at something else, he asked him to create a point also, but it seems like it doesn’t take. Is it likely that we both have our settings wrong ?*
Whilst my system ‘seems’ back to normal, I’d still like to know how to alter System/Windows default fonts please.
