    Usual first port of call: try resetting prefs [see FAQ]. This sounds like the kind of problem that this procedure fixes.

    Start by moving the fonts you recently added out of the C:/WINNT/Fonts folder to some temp folder.

    Restart Photoshop. If it loads properly, one of the fonts you recently installed is bad.

    A good idea if you plan on having a large number of fonts on your machine is to install a font-management utility which will allow you to have subsets of your total font set active. This will improve Photoshop's as well as overall system performance.
