Display Text becomes blurry

The displaying text of any windows app (Live Photo Viewer, Live mail) goes Blurry, and
when the curser is moved nearby they becomes normal.
I tried following ways:

> unchecked "Smooth Edges of screen fonts" in 'Appearance and performance'
but does not ratify the prob
Please help

Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Box (64-bit installed) + Service Pack 1

Other applications, non-Microsoft, do not have this new 'feature'?

Anything new installed recently around the time you noticed this starting to happen?

Does it happen everywhere in those M$ apps?

Suspect it's a setting within them or Windows, related to focus maybe or maybe within Catalyst, is where i would look, and upgrade your video driver/suite to the latest and see if by chance that fixes it. [13.1 is the latest stable release, I believe.]

I would leave the clear type ON probably, interesting issue, if it hadn't corrected when you took cursor nearby, I would have suspected the monitor was starting to go bad.

Thanks fro reply,
Non-Microsoft and MS Office apps also run fine,
But the problem is with the Microsoft "Live" apps, Movie Maker only.
I think,
the problem might have started when I restored the laptop from the recovery disks.

I'll try updating the catalyst center.

OK, that's good news then, it's a 'live' problem.

I don't have any of those apps to look at, to troubleshoot further, unfortunately.

Fingers crossed on Catalyst update.
