Every time I try to use the type tool I get a pop up message that says "Selected font failed during last operation. If problem persists, please disable font." It does it with every font I try to use. Please help me I'm trying to do course work for uni and this problem is wasting valuable time!

If the type-specific routines don’t work restoring Preferences after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved might be a further option:
