On XP Professional SP1 it causes a bugcheck in ATMFD.DLL. According
to the properties for this DLL this is the Adobe Type Manager driver.

The bugcheck code is PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA @ Base+0x28A75.

You can delete the registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Font Drivers

This will eliminate the immediate problem, but will remove type 1
font support.
