Re: Mathematica 9.0.0.0 for windows crash

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 reinstall.

One wonders why it is that every piece of software on the planet can successfully install their fonts on a Windows machine, but Wolfram has trouble figuring this out.
