System Fonts Disapearing on reboot?

There is a workstation in my domain that doesn't have some fonts installed, Arial, Tohoma, Times New Roman.  I don't know how this occured but anyway.  This is causing hell with Word and the system stuff, such as start menu, is displayed.  I can go to control panel > fonts and get the fonts installed with no problem.  Everything works great.  I can logon and logoff and the fonts stay there.  However, when I reboot the machine, the fonts have disapearred again.  Anyone know what is causing this?

Windows is supposed automatically to install every font in the Fonts folder when you restart Windows or open the Fonts folder in Windows Explorer.  If that's not happening, there's a corruption somewhere.  Have a look at:-

This may correct an incomplete fonts list in some applications. (Although it was written for NT, the same files apply to W2K.)
