this strange thing happened to my computer the other day. after booting up, i noticed all the text (in the start menu, applications,etc) seemed to be bold. how do i change it back to what it was? i know its just a minor thing but i find it mildly irritating now :badpc:. i've upload a few images in case you don't get what i'm saying.

Hope that clarifies things.

Are u using XP?

Is cleartype ticked under properties/appearance/effects/2nd option on the right?? Under use the following method, to smooth edges of screen fonts.

If it is, this maybe why things are in bold.
