I closed my computer as usual and go home. The day after ý opened it and ý saw that the normal appearence of my desktop was different. I did not change any proporties.
So I start thinking for a solution. I tried to change my desktop theme but ý got a error message. Then I uninstalled plus completely and reinstalled. It worked.
I put a password to my setup for all system to make sure no one else can use my computer. When my job finished I shut it down and go home and again the day after in the morning when I opened my computer ý saw that the problem reoccured.
When I open a word or excel document ý get a message something like "thoma font is missing". The docement opens but page setup is mixed. I never seen such a nonsence problem like this before. Can you help? I dont want to format or reinstall my windows 95 or uninstall office97.

Hi,

   Reinstall your fonts.  To do this, insert your Office Cd-rom and go to control panel.  Select fonts and on the File tab, select "install new fonts."  Instruct the program to install fonts from the valu pack in the office CD.

hope this helps.
