    Here's an unofficial but useful list of fonts in Vista - http://blogs.msdn.com/michkap/archive/2007/02/06/1607855.aspx

    I don't see Lucida Sans Unicode listed. I suspect the fonts you are missing didn't come with Vista but with some other program, possibly Photoshop or MS Office if you have it. Since Lucida Sans Unicode is made by Adobe and isn't free, maybe you can get it by reinstalling Photoshop.
