Hi,

To remove Fonts using regedit

Be warned, you break the registry you break PC, you are to blame no one else. So please be careful.

Press "Windows Key"
type: Regedit

For Windows 8 64bit
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\ Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

For Windows 8 32bit
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

Then select the fonts you want to remove on the right hand side and simply press "Del"

font will now be gone.

Hope this helps !!!
