For some concise background, I'm a designer and need to work with a variety of typefaces. I had a lot in my font folder, for Windows 7, and cleared them all. Of course, there are some the system wouldn't let me delete since they're essential. Then, I installed the fonts I needed after. My font folder is ideal right now.
However, there's one small problem that's irritating me. On a variety of webpages, such as Yahoo Answers and Behance, there's a version of Helvetica or Helvetica Neue being displayed, either one of the thin or light fonts. See the attachments.
The funny thing is, I purposely deleted those fonts since I don't like them. As you can tell, the thin/light version is very hard to read and almost has no use. When I had those fonts, I still had this problem, so I'm not sure what to do. I also have this issue with Internet Explorer on the same pages. Firefox lets websites choose their own fonts, which obviously gets rid of the issue, but brings about a whole variety of new issues depending on each webpage that I won't bother explaining.
There is no way to download Windows 7's default fonts in 2017, to my knowledge. I've searched far and wide on the internet for a solution. I could ask Microsoft about this problem, but they'll likely just tell me to buy the latest version of Windows.
