A font update issue with Photoshop

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hello, I am running CS5 on Windows 7, and Photoshop suddenly began to change my font every time I use Arial. It does not happen if I use Arial bold, italic, etc. Only if I use Arial regular.

I get this message "Some text layers might need to be updated before they can be used for vector based output. Do you want to update those layers now?"

It happens no matter if I open a preexisting file, or if I create a new one.

I was wondering, does anyone know what could cause this? I deleted my Photoshop settings folder, ran the font error script, and Arial is and has been installed on my computer, this is only a very recent issue with it.

Thanks in advance
