Appears Firefox uses Times New Roman by default. Wordpad on my PC uses something called Callabri.
See if you can change Firefox to use Arial

:Commands [CLEARALLRESTOREPOINTS] [Reboot]Right click on OTL and Run As Administrator. In the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the copied text (Ctrl + v) and then hit Run Fix.
Registry Remnants. Took a quick look at registry via regedit. Saw some entries of programs I had deleted. Any issues with these, would it be good to get rid of them or is it ok to leave as is?
may have been more, just took a quick look and those are the ones I recognized)
Driver Update Applications. I’ve just about gotten rid of all of the nasty “performance/security/etc”software from his machine (I don’t want to think how many $’s he’s spent on that stuff) … but I’ve so far retained a couple of driver update software routines he’s purchased, Advanced Driver Updater and DriverUpdate by slimware. Having something that serves to keep his drivers updated seems like a good idea. Doesn’t seem like there’s a need or it be desirable to have both products running. Any reasons to not keep one of these? Do you have an opinion regarding either of these products?
Cloud Backup Services. He also has two cloud backup services … MyPCBackup and Online Vault. Do you have any thoughts/experience on either service; do you recommend these types of services?
Do you know if “Akamai net session interface” safe to keep?
Printers. Also … reminder … the problem that actually prompted my dad to ask me for help was he lost ability to access his printers. I haven’t had his machine over at his place all this time, so haven’t tried … you think likely printer access was lost due to the variety of malware that was on the system? Would you speculate, maybe at most, I just reinstall the printer drivers and we should be good to go?
Parent Proofing. Also, considering my dad clicks on stuff, has downloaded lots of crapware … even paying money for it … would you have any advice for configuring his browsers, security software or some 3rd party software that could help protect himself from himself? I’m going to attempt, yet again, to have a civil discussion with him, explaining how he has these problems and mom's machine doesn't. It just seems to wear off after a while. Any advice … including references to information sites would be appreciated.
