Windows Server 2008 R2 Itatic font problem

    While doing some automatic windows updates, the default font for Windows 2008 R2 Server changed to Italics.  After getting perplexed about this problem and few hours of Internet searching, the solution was found at http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/problem-with-italic-fonts-everywhere-arial-233328.html.  Basically, it recommended a registry fix (see below), which seemed working perfectly. The replacement font prescribed in the registry fix sounded weird to me, so checked the name in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Segoe and found that it belongs to the Sans-serif font category.
