I have posted one of the images at your screen resolution 1920*1080, Let us know if its still 'Blurry'

Thanks.
No that is not blurry. But that is also below my screen resolution of 1920 x 1200.

Is this just a change from XP to Windows 7? Because I never had any trouble picking a wallpaper picture with XP.

Sorry Stephen, In your system Spec's it says 1920*1080?

I do know that when you use a png (high quality) wallpaper as a background Windows 7 converts it to a jpeg (lower quality) wallpaper.
I have no idea what WinXP used to do with Wallpaper images.

Did you have the same monitor when using Windows XP?
Ie. a screen with a resolution of 1920x1080?

My bad, it was Fit that left black bars on the sides. Fill is what it's set on now.
I figured as much.

Also, please fix your system specs to show the right resolution.

Sorry about that. I just figured how to get 1200 resolution yesterday afternoon and I forgot to make the change.

Blurry Font
While on the net I keep getting blurry font! It doesn't happen until I've been surfing for a while. Could this be the "FireFox" browser? If I highlight the font It clears up?? I am thinking the video card is going bad?? Any ideas? Thanks

One Blurry Icon
I created a desktop shortcut for Glary Utilities without the UAC prompt. It works fine. However, I went into the program files to change the icon, and it's there, but it's blurry. It's the only icon that's blurry. How do I get the original Glary Utilities sharp icon for this shortcut? Thanks.
