Some fonts will be grayed out, indicating that they are uninstalled. You will need to go through the font list below and uninstall the fonts by right-clicking the indicated font and selecting ‘Remove <font name here> Family’. If ‘<multiple>’ is listed after a font name below, remove all fonts in the list that begin with that font name. If you still receive the error for other fonts not listed below, you will need to disable those fonts as well. Most likely the additional errors are from fonts you installed on your computer and they came from an unverified source.
