    Installing a font somehow changed my default browser font.

    Hi guys, I'm a graphic designer who recently got a bunch of fonts, opentype files, and when I installed one ("Helvetica Neue Light Condensed") it somehow changed my browser default font. So unless there is a specific font used by a site all defaults are now Helvetica. I run Google Chrome as a browser and though I checked all of the font settings on it it seems that all is normal.
    I tried to delete the file but it tells me that it is in use in another program. I can delete other font files though.
    Any help would be appreciated, Helvetica Neue Light Condensed has awkward kerning that mesh letters together in all the wrong places.

    In google go into tools -> options
    Type font into search options.
    Click on customize fonts
    Is your font listed?
