You're not likely to get a lot farther with that rude subject line or
opening paragraph. We are all just other people with no obligation to
help you, if you want strangers to help you out of the goodness of their
hearts, you might want to treat them in a way that will make them want
to help you.

To rebuild the "font cache" you can run fc-cache -fv. To view the list
of fonts currently cached run fc-list.
The other thing to examine is your /etc/fonts/fonts.conf and
/etc/fonts/local.conf to see if helvetica is somehow being remapped to
the MS fonts. look at /usr/share/doc/fontconfig/fontconfig-user.txt.gz
for more info on this.
