Windows 7: Font's appearing wrongly in multiple programs

24 Apr 2013   #1

Font's appearing wrongly in multiple programs

I've noticed this in Eve Online Launcher, Steam Client, Spotify and a few other programs I've forgotten about.

My fonts on some programs are appearing strangely.

My 2 monitors are both size 1920x1080.
I use Display Fusion Pro & Rain Meter.
I also customize my PC a lot with custom themes, which involves editing stuff like Shell32.dll, though I only noticed this started happening a few weeks ago when I played about with Rain Meter and installed some fonts. I haven't changed Shell32.dll in a good 10 months.

Things I've done to try and fix this:
Control Panel > Fonts > Font Settings > Restore default font settings (did nothing)
Control Panel > Fonts > Font Settings > Adjust Cleartype Text (did nothing)
Install Cleartype Switch (did nothing)

Thanks for your time.

This glitch seems to have fixed itself in a recent steam or windows update.

So much for thinking this forum was active...
