Windows Weird Stuff

I am running Windows 7.  When I turned off my computer last night all was well – when I turned it on this morning all was not well.  I went to the web first and the fonts were all messed up – at many sites the fonts were all italic and in some cases bold italic.  It was the same in all web browsers and Excel.  I did a goggle search and found I am not the first one to have this problem which is certain fonts simply disappear.  Arial regular, Georgia regular and Verdana regular were no longer there.  I had to go to another computer and copy the missing fonts onto a thumb drive and reinstall them on my main computer.  There may be others missing but they haven’t bothered me yet.  The only thing that happened was Norton did a system scan last night that included a registry scan.

Has anyone else had this problem!

    Norton is supplied by Brighthouse in Florida.for IS. It a piece of crap. Loved Norton Utilities 10 years ago. But the security package is a resource hog, takes forever to load and has to be shut off to run many apps.

    Did Norton make a false positive of the font files and destroy or quarantine the fines?
