  1. Font Installer Hijacked

    I installed a chinese font installer software, after uninstalling it, it won't let me install other fonts because the installer is pointing to that old chinese font software and not the stock windows 10. I don't know what to do?

  2. how to add language package ?

    You. You're the one who needs it.

    That's all you need? Well to explain all of that will take quite a long post and it would be hijacking the thread.

    The only way you can get Indian language support on your phone yourself without breaking warranty is to get a font pack that includes indian language letters.

  3. CREATORS FALL 1709 UPGRADE - system font size gone

    Thank you, both of you. I have linked to the Winaero you gave and it works. The others I tried to d-load yesterday had been hijacked and were taking me to unknown sites.

    There is one area that is still affected, and that is my MS Office OUTLOOK. Inbox, Outbox and the contents of ALL folders I have created in the font of my choice does not look like the font of my choice. Not the list of Mail Folders on the left, but emails
    I have saved. Win 10 Version 1709 is not recognising fully my font choice. The shape is correct, but the appearance is so thin & spidery. May sound like triva to most, but these are my files, used every day.

    Any ideas?

    Font Installer Hijacked

    Chinese software, causing issues. Do not try a Malware scan, just nuke the drive with DBAN and install a fresh copy of Windows. Make sure that you change all online passwords also.
