    Unhappy Word 2004 Corrupt Fonts
    I have recently installed Office 2004 on a Mac running OSX 10.4.3 and I am experiencing a few problems when trying to run Word. Each time i open Word I get the following error message: "The font _____ is corrupt and should be removed" This error is displayed for all the fonts and I have to select ok time and time again (until I get sick and do a force quit!).

    I have had a look on the Microsoft Site and followed their recomended solutions to try and solve the problem - moving fonts to new folders, removing duplicates etc. I have even tried completely uninstalling Office and then do a complete fresh re-install but this does not solve the problem.

    I am fairly new to Mac's so i'm not sure what else to try so hopefully someone will have some ideas.

    Thanks in advance

    Try opening Font book and see if disabling the corrupted fonts there helps...

    Is there anyway of seeing exactly which fonts are corrupt as it is telling me that numerous ones are!
