    Font Installer Hijacked


    I installed a chinese font installer software, after uninstalling it, it won't let me install other fonts because the installer is pointing to that old chinese font software and not the stock windows 10. I don't know what to do?

    Chinese software, causing issues. Do not try a Malware scan, just nuke the drive with DBAN and install a fresh copy of Windows. Make sure that you change all online passwords also.

    If it's simply a filetype association issue, you can remove the association using RegEdit:

    How do I DISassociate a file type in Windows 10? - Microsoft Community

    It's too bad that MS didn't retain the means of doing it that was present in older versions of Windows.

    I went to regedit and under ttf there was nothing. However, i did a search for the chinese application name and it found the following:
