Windows 7: Text looks as if water has been poured on it

So turning off MLAA (Morphological filtering) worked?

Anyway whatever it was, glad to hear it's fixed.

Later.

Yes It made a remarkable improvement

I have noticed that the text in firefox is a bit odd ! it looks 'soft' not crisp. it's ok but not good for my old eyes

thanks

Fingers crossed then.

Perhaps we ought to leave the thread open for a few days, and then if you're experiencing no further problems perhaps you'd be kind enough to notify the mods it's solved - just click the red triangle and type solved in the text box.

I,myself has gone through the Blur effect also but it effected only the browsers/everything else was decent.

If you uninstall the video driver you have and go back to a older one that could fix it for me that was the only solution

step 1 uninstall /drivers
step 2 use driver sweep
step 3 install older driver just before the newest one

with these steps it should go back I have done this several times seems like ATI has corrective problems sometimes when new drivers are updated

Are you using Firefox 4?

Blurry text in IE9 and/or Firefox 4?? READ THIS

For me, disabling the Hardware Acceleration did the trick.
