Windows 7: Corrupt font(?) issue

Corrupt font(?) issue

Hi guys,

I seem to have an issue that I am assuming is issue related. One some sites my text is garbled when I type and on some it just garbles site text (see attachments). I had the same issue with iTunes but running Font Agent pro 4 seemed to fix that, but it hasn't helped on websites. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Update: I've just tested IE, FF and GC and:

IE: Issue doesn't occur
GC: Issue doesn't occur
FF: Garbled strange test issue sometimes appears (I'm running on a fresh install now and it is still happening).

No ideas here.

The W3C site font that was messed up was Myriad Pro, if I checked it properly. The Twitter one, Calibri.

Can't be a simple font corruption, if things are OK in IE and Google Chrome, but not in Firefox. (I don't have FF installed at the moment.)
