Left 4 Dead SKIDROW Uninstall Font ****up

After trying to uninstall Left 4 Dead SKIDROW, there was a font mess-up where everything appeared to be bold. Some minutes of research later it appears that the installer changes the default location of fonts in the registry for example from:

HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Fonts/Arial (TrueType) "arial.ttf" to
"%your install dir%\Left 4 Dead\platform\vgui\fonts\arial.ttf"

In order to correct the situation go to HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Fonts/ and start scrolling down to find all the fonts that had their values changed and change them back to the original path by deleting everything BUT the font filename for example "arial.ttf"

do create a restore point before editing registry values, and do not attempt this if the above don't make complete sense to you.
