I believe I used tweakui to put the font folder on my desktop... now I want
it gone and it won't remove, :)  also can't find where it is in tweakui and
allowed me to do that in the first place.. lol I know it's somewhere in the
registry but I have looked and can't find it.. any help always appreciated..
thanks rainy

Tweakui has an option for relocating a number of Special Folders but the
Fonts folder isn't one of them. You may have used some other method. Have
you tried booting to Safe Mode to do the move? Another option would be to
install MoveOnBoot it works nicely for this type of thing

thanks for the response... if Only I can remember how I did that!!... and
why I thought it was a good idea..lol no it won't move in safe mode, I would
rather not install another program... I am limited with how much space I
have left on my computer... maybe there is a registry entry I can remove?
thanks Rainy

If you did this a few days ago, use System Restore to return to a time
before you moved the folder.

Hi Harry.. I installed "Emco Move On Boot", but when I tried to move the
folder to the window inside the program as they instruct,the path that shows
is C Windows Fonts... not C:\Documents and Settings\----\Desktop so I think
that I now have two font folders.. "Emco Move on Boot" may remove my font
folder from windows..:(  there has to be a way to remove this folder some
other way.. hoping someone can help.. thanks Rainy
