Is there way to get all the default system fonts back? i wanted to create a back up in case. i have installed thousands of fonts and was wondering if theres way to flush the fonts that way i can reorganize them properly?

Not that I'm aware of, the font management in XP isnt real great.

Create a work folder, i.e. C:\tempfont | Put your XP CD in the drive and exit from the auto-run, then click Start | Run | Type cmd, and click OK | At the prompt type the following commands ( assuming your CD drive is D: - substitute the correct letter if it isn't), hitting ENTER after each...
EXPAND *.TT_ C:\tempfont
EXPAND *.FO_ C:\tempfont
REN *.TT_ *.TTF
REN *.FO_ *.FON
That will extract all 298 fonts to C:\tempfont. You can then go to the Fonts folder, browse to C:\tempfont, and select the ones you need. Check the 'Copy to fonts folder' box before OK. Once you're sure you have everything you need, you can delete the work folder.
