I have the dubious honor of cleaning up my father in law's malware infested laptop. I think I almost have the malware issue solved, and now I am turning my attention to general performance. Do you think that 330 installed fonts will cause noticeable issues on the following machine?
- Win XP Home SP 3
- Intel Core solo T1350 processor @1.86 ghz
- 512 mb Ram
- 55 gb hard disk with over 37 gb free.
Update After clearing most of the active problems from the machine, I came to the conclusion that the Antivirus program I installed was the main cause of the tremendous performance issues I was seeing. It seems that a poor old laptop with 512 mb of ram can't really handle AVG's full internet protection suite. Thanks for all the answers - I will agree that 300 fonts won't do anything to a healthy modern machine.
