For some odd reason (maybe a virus) all but 3 of windows fonts dissipated. Doing a repair the from the install disk does now work.

Is there a way to install these fonts manually or is there a MSI file that will install all fonts?

Thank you.

try this

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Install-or-uninstall-fonts

To install a font
1.Open Fonts by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts.

2.Click File, and then click Install New Font.

If you don’t see the File menu, press ALT.

3.In the Add Fonts dialog box, under Drives, click the drive where the font that you want to install is located.

4.Under Folders, double-click the folder containing the fonts that you want to add.

5.Under List of fonts, click the font that you want to add, and then click Install.

There are 2 ways in which this can be accomplished.  The first is a simple one.  Just copy the font to the Font Directory located at C:\Windows\Fonts which will install it for the system to use.  The other method is to click on the font file at its current location.  It will then give you a screen that shows the font preview and there you will see the button to install the font right at the top of the screen toward the left side.
