new fonts illustrator

Hi all,

Attempting to save a file in Illustrator.

I recently installed some new fonts to the system.

Now I can not save a file where I have used text ??
This goes for pre-installed fonts as well such as arial.

installed fonts into windows, fonts folder and these show up under illustrator drop down font list.

error message could not be more vague.
.......an unknown error has occured.....

thanks for an info.

one more thing. I just tried save as.

this brought up usual options and I unchecked box stating, ;PDF compatible.

The warning message at the bottom went away which stated ,; only fonts with permission will be saved.

previously I had never touched these settings when saving and would like to have the file PDF compatible.

thanks

can you change the text to outlines in illustrator? if so then chances are good the font is ok, if not then chances are good the font is corrupt.
