Since I've installed "Helvetica" on my PC my Google Chrome font has been messed up showing absurd fonts in fields such as "Fast Reply", "Follow me", ... . Searching the web I've found nothing what can be done to resolve this. Uninstalling Helvetica caused Chrome to use another font.

Can I do something about this? Maybe delete all Chrome preferences and other settings?

I'd unninstall Chrome, unninstall the font package and then reinstall Chrome.
