the link was for w98 anyway-
let us know if you find anything out!
Also you should be able to go to START>>CONTROL PANEL>>FONTS
and remove the file from there by highlighting it, go to FILE, then to DELETE.
I would do it in safemode
If safemode doesn't work then log on as the system administrator. And if that doesn't work then check the security permissions and take ownership if needed.
So eventually I did solve the problem -
Summary of solution
The default Times New Roman regular font had become corrupted. I went to my C:/winnt/fonts folder and tried to delete it but it wouldn't let me (access denied).
So I rebooted in safe mode, and it did let me delete it.
I then rebooted again in normal mode and went back to the font folder, clicked file>install new font and browsed to my laptop connection via LAN and selected the times new roman font from that folder ( I think the alternative would be the windows CD, or even getting a friend to email them).
I then rebooted one more time - BINGO!
Nice to be back in the non-italic world!
