Thanks, Jens.

I did have 3.0 installed also, and I found the extra fonts as you said.

I de-installed 3.0 and then found 4.0 complained about font problems, so I
de-installed and reinstalled 4.0, and now the fonts files look normal.

Unfortunately, the graphics response is still sticky, so I'm not really sure
what to do.
