Windows 7: Soft focus in Quicken and OpenOffice

13 Dec 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Soft focus in Quicken and OpenOffice

I'm stumped. I'm running a new Asus K60 computer with Win7 Home Premium 64 bit - 4 gb of RAM - a Pentium dual-core processor - and screen resolution set to 1366 x 768 on a 16-inch screen. Everything on the display looks sharp, and I've set ClearType to "on."

BUT - whenever I open either OpenOffice or Quicken, the screen is just a bit "fuzzy." Nobody seems to understand - or to tell me how to fix it. I've tried to attach an example, but not sure it will show up. . .

Is it that I'm running Win7 64 bit and the two programs 32 bit? They're both listed as compatible - but this is driving me CRAZY!

My Device list shows no exclamation marks - and everything else on the computer shows up nice and clean. SIGH.

Anybody out there with some good answers? I'm grateful in advance.

You need to demonstrate with a Screen Capture, not a PDF file...

Solved the fuzzy text problem!

Yo - see my posting at the head of the "Software" forum - but I solved the problem of soft-focus in OpenOffice and Quicken, etc.
Still don't understand - but everything's nice and crisp now.
