Windows 7: Default font settings changing

Default font settings changing

So I'm running across an issue with Win7 where my fonts seem to be changing on their own.

First I thought it must just be the settings on my browser, but its extended to my games and things as well. Steam, for instance, has changed from the default text (whatever it was) to a font that tends to overlap each other. I dont have any screen shots to show or I'd post them. Then just this morning all the text in my gmail account was italic on my home pc, but when I checked it from work it was normal.

Does anyone have any ideas? This is extremely annoying!

(My apologies if there is already a post addressing this, I couldn't easily find anything.)

Check your IE font settings. In your Internet Options 'General' tab, click the 'Accessibility' button and make sure all checkboxes are clear.
