Windows 7: Font Problems

Font Problems

My font was fine just a couple days ago, but now when I got to sites like Live Journal, the font is like some sort of defult font, not the one that is suppose to be there. When I check the same pages with firefox, the font looks like it should, but in IE8 is wrong. I've tried to figure this problem out on my own, but I'm getting nowhere. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi BeeBop,
Welcome to SevenForums.
Just go over to Internet Options in IE and click on Accessibility button at the bottom.
Make sure the three checkboxes are not checked. Click OK twice and refresh the page.

Thank you for the welcome, and the advice. I checked and all three boxes were unchecked already. So I checked them all then unchecked and refreshed and I still have the same problem.
