Default Windows Font gone screwy

I have a big problem and I need help fast.
A client's PC has Windings as its font and when I check in the fonts folder nothings there. All the text in windows is Windings. The Client removed the software he install which may have caused this (Adware,FTP software) I have ran a virus scan, spywear scan using MS anti spywear, Spybot and Ad-aware. the only. I removed what ever they found. I have cleaned all temp folders/files, tried to paste fonts back in the folder but as soon as I close it and open it they gone, all of them. I have tried a System file check, rebooting into safe mode and still the same thing. has anyone had this before?? I do not want to format as this may be the simplelist way around any issue.

Thanks Guys
