    What program are you using? Office? Works? WordPerfect?
    Reinstall whatever it is, as the fonts are part of the program.

    As they are system fonts you should be able to get them from the internet somewhere.
    But as raybay said, install any MS software, ie. the free powerpoint viewer, that should put the fonts back in there for you.

    There might be a real problem, if you have some minor infestation. So be sure to scan your system for malware. Recommended are MalwareBytes, SuperAntispyware or Spy Sweeper or Spyware Doctor, and Avira Antivir or AVAST to see if there is an evildoer as the cause.
