    I think you can simply delete the additional fonts(i.e. except the standard ones like Arial and Times New Roman) from the Control Panel itself..... :)

    Its better to backup the fonts before deleting them, then delete the backups about a month later after ensuring there are no problems...

    Please Do Not Delete The "fonts" Folder Itself. If You Delete, You Will Not Be Able To Boot Into Your System.

    There was a Word macro that lists all fonts installen in your system. Then you can select which ones you don't want and delete the unwanted ones. That word macro can be really helpful.

    Here's the code ;)
    Code:
    Sub ListFonts()
    '
    ' ListFonts Macro
    ' Macro created 27/04/2005 by tuxfan
    '
    
    Dim f As Variant
        Documents.Add
        
        With ActiveDocument.PageSetup.TextColumns
            .SetCount (2)
            .LineBetween = True
        End With
        
        Selection.Font.Size = 14
        For Each f In FontNames
            Selection.Font.Name = f
            Selection.TypeText (f & vbLf)
        Next
    End Sub
