Apparently my Tahoma font is corrupt. I want to remove it and reinstall. When I try to delete it, I am told that the file "is in use" and I am not allowed to delete.

I have also tried to boot into safe mode and delete the font with the same result.

after deleting it, or can't delete also
goto  regedit,
then

FIND tahoma
