Certain Preference Windows Are Enormous


New Member
The computer in question is running Windows XP SP2

Recently, I moved around some fonts from the Font folder in the windows directory. I moved them back when I was done, but I think I might have accidentally moved the Tahama (sp?) font, which was the font I was using for much of the text in the Windows GUI. Now, certain preference and toolbox windows are extraordinarily large. I'm not really sure what to think. It has rendered several of my programs useless, and I have a very hard time installing anything. I've already tried changing the GUI font and a few other things. Nothing seems to help.

By the way, my screen resolution is 1280/1024 on one screen, and 800/600 on the other (which happens to be a TV).

You can see a few screenshots here:

This is a screenshot of the Adobe Reader for PalmOS manager. It manages PDF's to be exported to my handheld device. It's supposed to be considerably smaller, about 500x500 perhaps.

This is the dialog box for saving a file in Photoshop 7. Obviously, it's distorted terribly.

Are there any repair apps that could fix this? Has some reg key gone mad? What is causing this singular issue?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Sup, Recoil here.
make sure the display settings are right
install Tahoma again
if all else fails, do a system restore
