Windows 7: Font problem in both IE8 and Firefox

Font problem in both IE8 and Firefox

I've got the RC 7100 installed, and since a few days ago, the fonts seem to have gone crazy. Here, have some pics:

In IE8, the fonts seem to be in italic, and in Firefox they seem to be bolded. This also happens in other websites besides Google, I don't quite remember any besides YouTube.

I had the same issue. The text was fine, then all of a sudden it was all thin and not right. This 100% worked for me.

Digger: control panel / display / Adjust cleartype text

Works perfectly. Thank you!

If its just a few days ago, and there are no better remedies, try system restore, thats what it is for.
