    I need to resolve this disappearing fonts problem I have on my XP
    machine with photoshop. Basically what's happening is once my system
    memory is starting to get taxed, i lose a bunch of fonts in photoshop.
    this is particularly annoying because i usually have a number of files
    open, and it's a real inconvenience for me to restart the program. I
    researched this problem and found the resolution might be a font
    manager, so I downloaded Sue's Font thing, but this isn't the most
    intuitive program. I'm fine with "activating" and "deactivating
    certain fonts at a time, but it ain't easy with this program.

    I have about 1500 font files in c:\windows\fonts\. what is the easiest
    resolution here, to delete a bunch of fonts? I find it a little
    ridiculous that windows/photoshop can't seem to manage this right, and
    i'm certainly not going to spend any money on a Font Manager to fix
    what appears to me as a program flaw. However, if i lose my freaking
    fonts one more time when i'm right in the middle of trying to get
    something delivered, i might put my fist through the wall. this is a
    huge, frustrating pain in the ass.

    any suggestions?
