fonts clearness and size

by peter007744 / September 30, 2005 4:42 AM PDT

when I used the webroots windows washer, it changed the font ?clearness? on all of my applications and software? everything from viewing IE pages to Microsoft word and excel numbers and letters. They all look a little blurrier and not the same (or as clear and crisp as they were before the window washer was run). Are you familiar with this and do you have any idea how to get back the viewing clarity before windows washer was run? Maybe it restored some type of default that I set up when I first got the pc? I have 2 flat panel NEC multisync LCD?s.

Also, everytime I boot up my pc the default font size in IE is to large and I have to reduce it every time I open a new IE window. Is there a way to make IE remember the font size I want every time I open it?

I've seen this in the past when playing with reg cleaners.

Does WW offer a restore function?

Does the OS you have offer a restore point?

Maybe restore the reg to a prior date?

Just wondering, have you tried

to run the LCD's at their native resolution? That may help. You can solve the size issues later.

I run my 17 inch CRT and 17 inch LCD at the native resolution of the LCD 1280 X 1024.

I'm well over 70 and can read everything fine even with my old eyes.

Have had the same problem. Really like the washer, nice bit of kit, BUT....

If you go into settings you will find that the default font is 'clear' so just un tick that and it should take care of that issue.

As to the slight blurriness...dont know..I run monitor on native resolution,the blurring is slight but noticable. If it cant resoved guess its a balance between acceptable clarity levels against the washing n bleaching capacity. Personally I'm still undecided, I'm running washer on free trial so have some days to decide before buying, anyone else out there got any more ideas?
