Windows 7: Font on browsers has changed, and won't change back.

Font on browsers has changed, and won't change back.

I got on chrome (the usual browser I use) today and noticed the font on my bookmarked tabs was different. Then as I went on various sites youtube, forums, ect, I noticed that all the fonts on these sites were changed as well. I also checked IE and saw the fonts were all changed on there. It was odd because last night everything was normal and I get on today and it is like this.

So after checking many forums I did a browser reset which didn't work. Cleared my cache and browser history, nothing. Even when I go to the chrome settings, and change the font it won't change. I even changed it to some random weird fonts and it won't change to anything else! I haven't downloaded any fonts in a long time so I know that isn't the reason. I really don't know what to do. The font it has now isn't bad or hard to read, it is just different and annoys me and I want the original one back. Anyone know what I can do?
