I am trying to copy a bunch of fonts to a PC. On the fonts that already exist on the PC I am prompted to hit OK. Is there anyway to avoid this? I just want to drag a FONTS folder from a CD to the C:\WINDOWS\ directory and overwrite the existing FONTS folder.

Fonts need to be installed. You can not simply drag and drop.
Go to Control Panel on the machine that you want to install the new CD on. Double click on "fonts".Delete all the fonts in here. Click on File then Install New Fonts. Select the drive or folder where the fonts you want to install are and then select the fonts you want to install (press select all) if you want all fonts in that directory.
