- Can't remove certain fonts in Windows 7 5 answers
Sometimes when I delete a font through the control panel applet I get a message that it is in use. If I attempt to delete the file in
%SYSTEMROOT%\fonts with farmanager it says that its locked by csrss.exe, the windows subsystem process. Obviously, there is some sort of IPC going on between csrss.exe and the process that actualyl uses the font. My question is how do I determine what process has a lock on the font?
