Can't tell how font folder suddenly turned into a normal folder view. Now I can't install fonts, nor can I change any of the fonts.
I'm not infected by malware, although there is possibility of a rootkit as my display properties are weird.
I tried doing system restore to the earliest time possible but the problem was still there. So the problem has been present more than 1 week.
One possible explanation might be that my little sister installed a few thousand fonts (I have no idea how she could get that many) and I had to delete most of them.
Any way to get the font folder back to its special view? Thanks :thumbsup:Posted Image

Nope, problem still isn't solved :thumbsup:
And, assuming that I do have a rootkit, which rootkit application should I try downloading?
