there has been numerous threads about turning off clear type but its still bugs me (and burns my eyes!)
- default aero skin
- custom skins made by MS
despite turning smoothing of fonts in System Properties -> Advanced -> Performance/settings and Disabling it in ClearType tuner (the box is unticked) the context menus menus / places bar (crumbsbar?) / taskbar still uses cleartype :/
After installations of Windows 7 I've made some custom skin (modified default aero with custom background and changed a big shade of windows with sliders from control panel) and this skin obey my settings - everything is sharp without this stupid glow.
Anyone has any idea what I can still change to get rid of ClearType?! /me begs
