have you looked in the fonts folder? do you see anything that looks like it's probably not a font? or are there a LOT more files that should be in there (i've got 500, if you've got something like 1,000 files in the folder and you don't remember installing 500 extra fonts...i'd be suspicious)? to be safe i suggest taking a spin through the malware forum.
Please read the Malware/Spyware cleaning guide here
follow the instructions at the top....
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty (and you may not be) then post an OTL log in THE MALWARE FORUM
forum.(Posting OTL logs or ANY other logs requested in the malware/spyware cleaning guide in any other forum other than the malware forum is forbidden. If you post any of these logs in any other forum, it will be removed and it will take you longer to get help, so please make sure you only post logs in the malware forum)
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this
you could also run a repair install (assuming you've got your system disks). when you ran sfc, it detected that the files where there, and left them alone. SFC doesn't always inspect every file to see if it's functional or not, just if it's there. a repair install doesn't inspect anything. it simply deletes all of the operating system files and puts them back.Repair the Windows XP installation.
