Haunted by Arial MT

I inadvertently installed the Arial MT fonts - Regular, Bold, Italic etc recently.  However, all my Flash files started replacing the standard Arial font in the text fields with Arial MT; and every time I tried to change them back to standard it always switches immediately back to Arial MT.

I thought that removing these fonts from my Windows/Fonts folder would fix this issue, but no!  I can see that the Arial MT font files are all gone from the Windows/Fonts folder (I even used the AMP Font Viewer to double-check) - but unfortunately, when I went back to my fla files the Arial MT is still there and it still won't let me go back to standard.

This is driving me potty, as those MT fonts are pretty horrible.  It's almost like a virus!!  (Yes, I have checked for viruses, btw)

Any ideas anyone?  Would be very grateful!  My OS is Windows Vista and I'm running CS5.

Unless you somehow have the PostScript Type 1 versions that were used
internally by Acrobat 4 and 5, they are the same fonts.
