did you change any font settings on your browser by any chance?
do all your windows fonts appear bold? or only browsers? and that's an earlier version of internet explorer. not 9.

Well no. As I said I was uninstalling stuff. At the same time i installed a theme for my Firefox browser. So no I haven't touched any font settings myself. Right now as you can see this forum shows up in bold, Youtube also shows up in bold. I think these are the ones BUT! As I was browsing trough the Internet i found a vista fix for the font. That fixed the partly. Now all my system apps show up differently NOT bold but in a different font. The fix was a registry entry file. I can show it if you like. I think it was shown by Google in this forum somewhere.

You can try a Repair Install, if successful, it will retain your programs.

Looking at your screenshot attached, most probably the Arial Regular font is corrupted or missing.

Tried this and see if its work....

Go to %system%/windows/Fonts/Arial.....double click on Arial - there should be 9 Arial fonts inside.

You have to take ownership for Arial Regular.ttf if the font exist..delete it after taking ownership.
If you can't delete it, just do a reboot and enter safe mode (F8) and delete it.

Re-installed Arial Regular Font.


I have uploaded my Arial Fonts just in case you might need it..or you can just get it from any other computer if you have.
Start up your internet browser...see whether the bold is gone.


Hope it works for you...
