I am running Windows 7 (brand new computer from Dell with Win 7 factory installed) but when I installed Word 2010 and Microsoft Publisher 2010 and go into either of those programs and try to pick a font, there are only 3 system fonts listed.

If I go into my Fonts directory I can see all of my system fonts (dozens of them). But under Word 2010 and Publisher 2010, I only see three fonts listed.

I am using my admin account under Windows 7 so permissions is not a problem.

Any ideas?

Rebuild the Font Cache.

The Windows operating system has a font cache file that is located here: C:\Windows\System32\FNTCACHE.DAT

Delete this file, and restart your system.
