Windows 7: After using Cleartype - Text in every application fuzzy

Win 7 Ultimate Build 7600
After using Cleartype - Text in every application fuzzy

Hi Forum peeps,

I recently installed Windows7Ultimate build 7600, and everything was going fine till i played around with cleartype.

In games, IE, applications, desktop all of my fonts are fuzzy and not in proportion.

The problem is.. with the Cleartype tool, I cannot distinguish the difference between the choices, not from impairment, but they all look the same.

I suspect this is not the only problem, I have been changing my resolution to get the best picture and now when i set to the resolution 1440 x 900 widescreen, as I have been running in the past, my desktop shrinks to 1/2 the size of my screen (32 inch Panasonic LCD).

I have been through ever setting and re-installed my video Drivers (2 x Radeon HD3850 Crossfire) also installed the ATI CCC and tried changing settings in that.

When I first installed Windows 7 it was perfect, but I cannot seem to undo this font change.

I never thought that changing a simple resolution setting would cause this much trouble.

Any thoughts or help would be greatly Appreciated.

Maybe so but you learned something and since you posted your mistake, others can learn something too! And that's a good thing.
