This error sometimes goes away by itself - try a reboot, and if you don't see it again then there is nothing to worry about. However if the error persists after a reboot then chances are that the Arial font (or whichever font is mentioned in the error message) on your PC is corrupt. There is lots of information on the web about how to fix this - one solution that has worked for BitMeter users in the past is detailed below.

Please note that the following instructions assume that the error message was referring to the Arial font, if your error concerned a different font (Courier or Tahoma are the other common ones) then you will need to change the procedure accordingly.

Find someone with a PC and take a copy of their Arial font as follows:
* Go to the 'fonts' folder on their PC (probably c:\windows\fonts)
* Find the file called Arial.ttf - you might see it called Arial (TrueType)
* Copy it onto a USB drive/floppy/CD-ROM

Then install it on your PC as follows:
* Go to the 'fonts' folder on your PC
* Find the file called Arial.ttf
* Delete it
* Move the Arial.ttf file that you copied from the other PC into the fonts folder.

Please note that the Arial font is part of the Windows operating system, and therefore taking copies of it may be deemed an act of software piracy - do this at your own risk...
