Dear Helpers,

For as yet unknown reason I suddenly lost all but one font (Roman 10cpi) from my Word 2000, while the default font Arial is still there, I cannot choose it any more from the list. As a matter of fact, I lost all but one font (Times New Roman) from Powerpoint 2000, but seem to still have all original fonts in Excel.
What can have gone wrong and how to restore? I've run a repair-install of MS Office 2000 Professional already to no avail.

Title : MS Word Fonts lost

probably the default printer has been set to other than a valid printer.

-close word
-check that your default printer has not been set to "generic, text only" as this will stop fonts from showing
-open word
