Windows Explorer 9 rendering fonts improperly?

I just built a new system with Windoes 7 and just noticed that the headline font on engadget show us a little messed up. Look at the image below. The top line of text is from IE9 and the one below is from firefox both from the same computer. Any idea why the top one is a little messed up? I can honestly say I only noticed it on this one website and only the headlines. I'm using a XFX Radeon 6950 video card using the latest catalyst drivers.

Is it like that for every title on Engadget?

Have you fully updated Windows 7 and installed any IE9 updates that came through?

It's every major headline. See attached. If I use FireFox, they all come out looking fine.
