Tuneup registry cleaner delete fonts making everything garbled

Tuneup registry cleaner delete fonts making everything garbled

Running a registry clean using tune-up on a Windows 2008 server detected Missing fonts. Selecting to clean up the missing entries caused all the fonts to display as wingdings or other characters, making the system unuseable.

We had a similar issue with a different registry cleaner on a Windows 2003 server recently also.

I re-enstated the fonts from backup, but each time tune-up was run it still detected the fonts as missing. Thinking some were corrupted I also copied and installed the fonts from another system, but tune-up still detected them as missing even though they work fine.

Here is an example of one of the errors detected.

Missing font Levenim MT (TrueType)
———————————-
The registry contains an entry for the font “Levenim MT (TrueType)” under “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts” that points to the missing file “lvnm_4.ttf”.
