ok  deleting some temps and other files with cleanup program is ok, but sounds like somewhere in between the fonts and the updates this problem started so the only thing that comes to mind is do the scanreg trick again but this time type scanreg/restore, a menu will come up and pick the file with a date a few days ago and tell it to restore
