How do I remove fonts from Windows 7

I just did a clean install of Windows 7 to a PC. I use font management software and do not want the windows/fonts folder to get overrun with fonts. I am trying to move fonts from the fonts folder and am not having much success. When I delete a font, it either (a) does not delete, though I'm not given any warning; or (b) I am told that the font is in use and cannot be deleted.

Thanks Mattibutt and ACL-PUZZ.

I know HOW to install and uninstall fonts. That is not the issue. The issue is fonts that Windows 7 will not allow me to uninstall. There are a number of preloaded fonts in there that I do not want and they are not needed by the system.

In my original message I said:

When I delete a font, it either (a) does not delete, though I'm not given any warning; or (b) I am told that the font is in use and cannot be deleted.

I need a way to get into the system so that I can delete the fonts WHEN DELETING THEM THROUGH THE FONTS CONTROL PANEL DOES NOT WORK.

Mattibutt,

The registry edits in the link you gave provided the info on how to extricate the fonts.

Thanks,
Rob
