    Windows font folder - access is denied

    Hello guys. I'm facing some problems trying to instal new fonts on my Windows 8.1. I downloaded the font, but when i click instal on it, a dialog window appears saying : Windows font folder - access is denied. I also tried copying the font, to the Fonts folder at control panel, but i recieve the same error. Some people say i need to change my administrator options, but the thing is the font folder does not have a propertis button. I would be really grateful if someone could help me. Cheers!

    When you downloaded the fonts did you right click them & click Properties & Unblock them ?
