    Default Office fonts 'corrupt'???

    I asked a question a long time ago regarding Office 2004 which I'm using on an intel iMac. Every time I start it up, it initializes the fonts and then comes up with this message:

    If I remove the font, it tells me another font is corrupt . What can I do to fix this????

    Thanks,
    iTM

    Tried reinstalling....didn't change a thing. Thanks for the google suggestion though (normally have to sift through so much stuff to find what you want!!!!), I did come a across a quick fix. For those who have this problem and for future reference this is what worked for me:

    Find "FontCacheTool" in the MS office root folder (in applications), simply delete the Font Cache Tool, and it bypasses the problem...

    I wondered where that damn Arial Narrow font came from. Thanks for that.
