With some past versions on Windows, right after installation Mathematica
itself would crash, not Windows, when there were any font issues. The
fix was always to manually delete the Mathematica fonts, then
re-install.

then attempted each of the fixes mentioned in the knowledge base
article. The result is that the Mathematica frontend crashes on startup.
So this is a no-go: I am unable to install and run Mathematica 9,
period.

software on the planet can successfully install their fonts on a Windows
machine, but Wolfram has trouble figuring this out.
