The HTA extension is NOT a font, it's a HTML application. A HTML
application is similar to a web page, but isn't subject to all of the
restrictions that reduce the mischef regular htm and html files can
attempt. You should use an antivirus and some anti spyware utilities to
scan your system.

Your PC's infected. That's why you're getting the warning. You
might want to take a look here:

http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/chronicles.htm

Scroll down to the Variant 13 section.

Download and run the CWShredder program to see if it fixes the
problem.

What AV program are you running? Is it a recent version, no older
than 2003? If so update it and run a scan. If not try one of the
following free scans.

Good luck

Even though that took care of your original problem, you might
want to do a thorough search for other pests. At the very least
run an AV scan in Safe Mode. You might also want to download,
install, update and run AdAware in Safe Mode. It's available
here:

If you want some more info, take a look at this site:

Fonts folder doesn't use a folder viewer but a font viewer. Therefore it only shows installed fonts not files. You need to use a command prompt to access files in Fonts.
