What you need is Disable and Turn Off ClearType Fonts in Windows Vista

Windows Vista by default applies ClearType effect to the fonts displayed on screen, in order to improve the appearance of text on certain types of computer display screens, especially LCD flat-panel monitors. As ClearType text actually sacrifices color or chrominance details aspect of image quality for light and dark or luminance detail, some people may not like the blurry font style in ClearType. Here’s a easy way to disable or turn off ClearType in Windows Vista.

1. Right click on any blank spot of desktop, and then select Personalize on pop-up context menu.
2. Select Window Color and Appearance.
3. Click on “Open classic appearance properties for more color options” link located at the bottom of the page.
4. Click on the Effects button.
5. Do one of the following:

Uncheck (untick) the “Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts” box.

or

Select “Standard” to replace ClearType in the drop down list under the above title.
6. Click OK, then click Apply, and finally finish with clicking OK again.

To enable or turn on ClearType effect again, simply reverse the setting in the Effects step.

Fonts are symbols, squares, question marks and others.


Perhaps someone is messing with you, and changed your fonts to "Wingdings". Follow the instructions on this page to change your fonts back to something more preferable http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1175-fonts-change.html
  1. Right-click the desktop. Choose "Personalize."
  2. Click Window Color and Appearance.
  3. Click Advanced Appearance Settings
  4. Go through each item and reset fonts (where appropriate) to Segoe UI 9pt, not bold, not italic. (All the settings in a default Win7 or Vista machine will be Segoe UI 9pt.)
OR this old post suggests that a windows update caused the font change, and recommends you reload the fonts http://www.sevenforums.com/system-security/185352-virus-caused-all-font-change-windows-7-a.html

After upgrading from Vista Home Premium 32 to Windows 7 Home Premium 32 I have terrible blurry text and get headaches. My display is a Vizio HDTV 20'' and I have NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT display adapter....


Hello,

the problem is because the VGA driver has not been installed. The VGA driver for Vista is different from that of Win 7. Running the upgrade also could cause the problem.

Back up all your important files, and re-run the win 7 afresh. You have to re-run by inserting the win 7 cd into your Cd drive, restart your system and allow it boot from CD and not running from windows.

In the process of the installation, format your hard drive and allow the installation to complete.

After then, install the drivers like; Sound, vga, etc and do windows update. After the windows update, your display will be unique.

Take care.

My daughter played toontown and when she quit it completely changed my screen resolution and blurred out my screen fonts. I fxed the resolution but now the fonts on my desktop are permanently blurry.


try updating your graphics card drivers, if that doesn't work, try restarting the computer, going into advanced boot options, and then, first select last known good configuration, and if it doesn't work... try using system restore... if that doesn't work as well, it means, that a startup program might be at fault, try this..
