[WIN7] Deleting Protected Fonts?

Is there any way to delete a "Protected Font"?

Thanks!

Found the answer: Never thought that it would allow deletion in the Registry, but it did.

Ref: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

I installed Printmaster a little while back & it installed quite a few fonts.
Here's the issue: I still use Microsoft Works for a simple purpose which gave me a warning upon opening it that I had over 500 fonts installed & it could cause issues. I started purging some Printmaster installed fonts along with some OS fonts to satisfy the warning. Upon doing this, I was greeted with warnings that some of these fonts were protected. Most of the protected fonts I wanted to delete were just foreign fonts I would never use. So, this brought me to ask the question for my topic & of course the solution I found to delete protected fonts.
