w 1 fonts in MS-Word

By petenjodi ·
I have a client that has several emails attachments that open and default to a font type called w 1. Which opens into an non legiable format, which is all run together. We have made sure the Virus engine is current and has updated DAT's, and run an scan. Removed all the Temp files, and tried reloading MS-Word. We currently have Word 97 with OSR2 loaded. We have a work-around already for the client but we would like to elimate the problem ? Any ideas would be appericated.

Once the attachment was opened and had a chance to replicate itself the only option may be to reinstall the OS,once youreinstalled MS-WORD you basically canceled out any solutions for quick fix.
You can try locating the files in Windows in windowsexplorer

Thanks we where able to find a font in Windows Fonts dir that had been created about the same time the client reported the issue and remove it. Sounds although like this activity you seem to think may be virus like related in its action of spreading? Could you clarify if possible.
