Windows & Font Issue

I have a new machine with Window 7 Professional installed. I have loaded 61 Open Typeface fonts and when I shut down and start up again they do not show-up in the fonts folder; and show-up as missing in applications that I have used them in. After I re-install them several times and every time they show-up in the fonts folder and in all applications, but it seems when I shut down they disappear again (including showing as missing from the files that have used them). When I reinstall them I get a message that they are already installed (even though I can not see them and they are not accessible by the apps).
I have other Open Type fonts installed without this problem.
As a note, when I reinstall them I can print, create PDF etc., but as soon as the machine is shut down when I start again they are missing (except in any PDF created), even though when I go to reinstall Window claims they are already installed.
Has anyone uncounted this phantom font issue with Window 7?
Please help.

Copy the .ttf files from wherever you have them saved into the C:\Windows\Fonts folder. Windows will automatically install them.
