false information. not only does it say Windows 95/98, it is a website I gave a poor web of trust (WOT) rating for because they are known for providing false information

With all due respect, I disagree with you. It isn't False information as you asserted. It is just an out of date information. The author of the article Johnw posted clearly emphasized in its Note to the reader: This article was originally written in 1999, when Windows 95 and 98 were the prevalent operating systems.

Windows 7 is a different animal. On installation Windows 7 placed 125 fonts by default. Then whatever application you installed placed additional fonts on top of it. Removing fonts without knowing how they got there in the first place can cause your personally installed programs and software to stop functioning properly.

I did go through the 3 pages before posting & found useful info in there.

"Note to the reader: This article was originally written in 1999, when Windows 95 and 98 were the prevalent operating systems. Now most Windows computers are running Windows XP or Windows 2000 where font overload is not as much of an issue as it once was. Although newer versions of Windows are able to handle a virtually unlimited number of fonts, the tips in this article are still useful for keeping large font collections manageable no matter what your operating system."
