Default Repetitive Dialog Boxes

I'm trying to install some new fonts - over 1000 of them - but some are obviously already installed on my computer. Because of this, a dialog box appears whenever I go to install them saying that if I want to install this font I have to uninstall the original one first. I click okay to continue installing, the only problem is that this is quite frequent.

Yesterday when I tried I click the mouse button about 200 times and only got the installation percentage to 8%

I gave up hoping that there is a way to streamline the process,or perhaps make that dialog box that pops up to automatically click ok.

I tried a mouse recorder but I didn't know what I was really doing and it didn't work. If there's an easier mouse recorder, or an easier way of installing fonts I would love to hear it.
