Registry Clean Pro

A utility to fix errors and optimize the performance of the Windows registry.

You are here: Registry Clean Pro > Online Help > Fonts


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Fonts (Windows 98/ME) or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts (Windows NT/2000/XP)

This section contains references to all the fonts installed on your computer. If you move or delete a font file referenced from this section using a program other than Windows Explorer, the registry entry pointing to this font becomes invalid as it refers to a font file that no longer exists.

If a reference to a missing font file remains in the Fonts registry section, the font may still appear in font lists but the font itself is inaccessible. This can cause problems for the applications that use this font or display font lists.

Registry Clean Pro scans every entry in the Fonts section to make sure that the corresponding font files are present. If a font file referenced from the Fonts section cannot be found, its entry is removed from the registry.

If a registry reference to a font file is specified as a short filename without the full path, Registry Clean Pro tries to find the file in all the folders on your hard drives. If the file in question is not found, the registry entry referring to this file is considered invalid and is removed from the registry. If one or more files with that name are found, Registry Clean Pro does not remove the reference from the registry. If a reference points to a file located on a network drive, Registry Clean Pro does not remove this reference.
