Is it possible to convert read only files or download them a certain way so that they actually work and not [bleep] up your programs?

I recently had an incident where read only font files were screwing up my programs to the point where you couldnt use them. Im just want to know if its possible to do something to read only fonts so that they are actually able to be used without a problem.

Im interested in any info or advice in this area because I want to know if I should or shouldnt even bother with read only fonts when Im selecting them and downloading them.

Thanks in advance for any help or info, its much appreciated.

Im using Windows XP

Hello and Welcome to Geeks To Go Akuji

If you have read only files and what to turn off the read only, Right click them and press properties and then in the general tab untick the read only box.

Hope this helps.
