Remove font names from Illustrator CS6 list

I have removed several fonts from my system (Win 7 pro) but they still show up in the drop down in Illustrator CS6. I have gone thru control panel/fonts and that didn't work. How do I get the fonts that are no longer on my system off the list please?

Adobe community forums seems to suggest that pressing the F5 key would refresh the font list.

Are you using a font manager, like Adobe Type Manager? Or did you just delete the font files from the File Explorer?

I just deleted the fonts from the font folder in windows. I did the F5 key. It removed the fonts from the list but still left all the spaces for it. Now I have a long list of empty lines. And if I click on the empty line it still tells me the name of the missing fontScreen pic of listScreen pic of list
