Default Font Dilemma

Hey, new here.. but plan on hanging out, seems like a good place to get some questions answered. Anyway, I searched and nothing came up answering my question, so here goes:

I Just did a re-installation of windows XP. Before, to add fonts, all I had to do was drag the font file into the FONTS folder in windows.

After the re-installation, I'm not able to do this. Only by going to control panel and adding one, one font at a time. At that rate, it would take me days to install them all.

Its probably something obvious, what am I overlooking to be able to drag the files straight into the windows/fonts folder? Any help would be appreicated, thanks!

You can select multiple fonts at once.
