Ok, a weird title but bear with me.
Sometimes when I try to run a program that uses Java I receive an assertion error that I eventually figured out has to do with a corrupt font(s). I've read that I should go in to my Fonts folder and remove all of the fonts that don't have a green/black O or a red A as an icon. I tried doing this but I have come across a few fonts that just wont budge.
There are 9 fonts and their names are rather unordinary:
Batang & BatangChe & Gungsuh & GungsuhChe
Gulim & GulimChe & Dotum & DotumChe
Meiryo & Meiryo Italic
Meiryo Bold & Meiryo Bold Italic
MingLiU & PMingLiU & MingLiU_HKSCS
MingLiU-ExtB& PMingLiU-ExtB & MingLiU-...
MS Gothic & MS PGothic & MS UI Gothic
MS Mincho & MS PMincho
SimSun & NSimSun
When you view the fonts in the folder that is how they are displayed, however their real file names are as follows in order as I posted:
So I am not sure why they are being displayed differently then their real file names. Anyways, when I try to delete any of the fonts I receive a Destination Folder Access Denied error.
I have read around earlier today that you receive this because you aren't set as the Administrator which I am set as, so that point doesn't matter. When I go and try to change the permissions on the files there is a Username TrustedInstaller that has full permissions for the files. I cannot change the permissions of that username and I cannot change permissions of SYSTEM/Administrator/Users accounts to be able to delete the files.
I tried booting into safe mode and deleting the files as well but no luck there. The .ttc extension stands for TrueType Collection and the files range in anywhere from 7.45-32.2MB and seem to be a container for numerous fonts. I am almost positive that these files are creating the assertion error.
Does anybody know how to delete these files? When I try to move them it only copies the file. Anybody know what to do other then a reformat? Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
P.S. I have gone through and checked every font in the folder opening and closing them one by one to see if there were any invalid files, none existed. I had also read that the error can sometimes be caused by a font in the Fonts listed as a shortcut instead of an actual file but no shortcuts exist.
