Do you maybe have only one or two TrueType fonts in c:\windows\Fonts?

If so, go to:
Download the fonts. You can also get fonts from an existing Windows 
installation (which may violate the license... whatever). Put them in 
the C:\windows\Fonts directory, and things hopefully will look good again.
