    I cannot find 32 of my installed fonts (Win2000, Office2000)

    I want to uninstall 19 font groups (32 entries in the drop-down font menu). I cannot find them!

    My WinNTFonts folder does not have all my "installed" fonts. I cannot find them elsewhere. Font Wrangler doesn't find them. They do not appear in the list under Fonts in Control Panel.

    Examples are - Albertus MT, Albertus MT Lt, Antique Olive Compact, Antique Olive Roman, Bodoni (3 variations), etc. I have searched my hard disks for *zapf*.* (ZapfChancery), *32bc*.* (Copperplate32bc), gill*.* (the 3 Gillsans), cooper*, and copper*.. Zero hits. I picked these font names because I thought the file names would contain a particular string.

    Help?

    Remember that some of these types of fonts are installed by different programs and are stored in subfolders within the program. Some also have different file names from those that are listed in the font list. See attachment for sample. The attachment is a shot of the font file list using Windows Explorer, firts colum is Font Name, next File name, size and modfied.
    Hope this helps.

    Excellent suggestion -

    I searched my hard disks for every TFF and FON file - then AFM, FOG, FOT, PFA, PFB -
    BINGO! There they are - Adobe Type 1 fonts in
    . . Program FilesCommon FilesAdobeReqrdBase
    and under
    . . Acrobat 5.0ResourcesFont

    Now I have to figure out if it's possible to delete them off my font list in Office Applications. ARGH
