Default Vista! Ah, Vista, why these useless fonts!

Since committing the egregious folly of 'upgrading' to Vista, I have acquired a multitude of unwanted foreign fonts. No, not the 'C' word fonts, but things like Mongolian, Japanese, Chinese, Hebrew and Arabic fonts which are neither of use or ornament to me. They clutter up my font listings and use resources needlessly. But can I remove the little beggars? Can I heck as like! Some uninstall only to reload when I reboot. Others refuse to budge under any circumstances.Neither of my font managers can get rid of them, and Vista tells me I need permission to uninstall them manually , even when I have administrator rights, UAC is turned off and my name is included in the permissions list for the files. There is no Help topic covering this issue and Microsoft KB is like the fabled chocolate teapot on the matter.

Any person who can show me how to banish BatangChe,SimSun, FrankRuehl,Iskola Poota (I kid you not)et al to the Recycle Bin will have my undying gratitude: a not insubstantial reward!!!
