    My mother in-law gave me an office computer which is in good shape but there are a bunch of windows fonts missing. Does anyone know where I can find them on the XP cd or possibly get them all off the web. I am searching the cd and no luck yet. Thanks for your time and knowledge.

    From what I recall, most of the files on the XP cd are compressed. So, finding them will be a challenge.
    However, if you just reinstall the windows software without reformatting the HD, you should be fine and the fonts should reinstall themselves.
