    I just installed a lot of fonts yesterday that were originally located on a computer in my classroom. (I need to have the same fonts as the students are using.) Now my problem is that, when I open MS Word, it is telling me that there are a great deal of corrupted fonts. It is telling me to remove the corrupted file. Short of writing down each one and then removing them each individually, is there any sort of way that I can have OS X detect the corrupted fonts and then delete (or even quarentine) them for me?

    I don't know whether this will help.

    Start Font Book (in your Apps folder).
    Select all fonts
    Click File>Validate Fonts

    Good luck

    EDIT: oh, and while you are there (in Font Book) take the opportunity to clean up duplicate fonts (sometimes they can cause problems, especially with MS Office apps)
