Windows 7: Turn off Clear Type completely

Turn off Clear Type completely

I've turned off clear type and changed all fonts possible to 'Verdana' to have nice and crispy fonts like Windows Classic. But some dialogs still show fuzzy Win7 standard fonts which causes eye cancer...

Does anyone know how to completely turn off smoothed fonts for all aspects/dialogs in Windows 7?

Eye Cancer ey?

Start > Right Click Computer > Properties > Advanced System Settings > Advanced > Performance Box > Settings Button > Choose Custom > Uncheck "Smooth Edges of Screen Fonts" towards the bottom.

Visual Effects Settings - Change

If you want a completely classic look, just tick "Adjust for Best Performance tick."
