I have all italics in IE8 & Outlook!!

Well this issue started about a week ago, I still have not figured out what caused it or how to fix it, I tried some fixes I found on a Vista message board but they don't seem to work, & yes I went to the font settings & tried to make the changes plus changed them in IE8 & Outlook. If anyone knows how I can fix this issue I'd be so greatful.

I also sent feedback to M$.

Can you please post screenshots of IE8 and Outlook so we can check what items are italicized?

Thanks

Thanks for the screenies.

On IE: You can just go ahead and reset it to defaults;
Go to Tools>Internet Options then Advanced tab
Under Reset Internet Explorer setting, click on Reset
After that's done verify two settings;
1. Tools>Internet Options>General>Fonts
Language script: Latin
Webpage font: Times New Roman
Plain text font: Courier New
2. Tools>Internet Options>General>Accessibility
Nothing should have any check marks

On Outlook: The one shot solution is to just run Office Diagnostics
Open Outlook>Help>Office Diagnostics
It will ask you to reset everything to default and all customizations, just say yes.

To verify if you have the correct font settings in Outlook
Open Outlook>View>Arrange By>Custom
Please refer to attachment on font settings

Cheers

Right click the desktop>Personalize
Select the first scheme under Ease of Access Theme
After it has been applied
You can then click on Window Color
Here you can select the items you want and change fonts, font size, color, bold and
italic.

Cheers

Well the only other option I could think of short of a full reinstall is doing a Repair Install.

Please do let us know the progress of your case

Is there a chance some system fonts have been removed and it is reverting to another version?

If you do a SFC, make sure and reboot afterward.
