That sounds like a problem with the file you're downloading. Are you downloading the in compressed folder files, like ZIP or RAR?

Might be the place you're downloading them from. And for fonts, all I do is download the zip file right to the Windows font folder, and just unzip it in there and its fine. I'm sure a zip file isn't gonna harm anything really. I've had no problems.(Also less of a hassle)

So anyway, what site are you getting your fonts from? Sounds like a problem with the file itself. If you're not downloading them from dafont.com, do that. :)

You don't have to put fonts in your windows folder to use them in PSP and PS. Open the font (so you get the quick brown fox blah blah) minimise it and then launch PSP or PS and that font will be in your list of fonts in the program.

But that's more difficult.....especially when you have lots of fonts and you want to try each one of them to see which looks better in the banner. I understand you don't use or add brushes and fonts and stuff because it slows down Photoshop when opening it, but what's better? Waiting a bit longer to open photoshop, or going through all the extra fuss just to use a font or brush, only to find that it's not what you wanted and have to try another? :)
