This should, hopefully, be a simple problem to rectify.
My office 2007 UI is in italics; that is the menu bar, header, toolbars and mail listings. I honestly *hate* it - no other Outlook 2007 copy does this in our office and it's a clean installation.

Is there anything I can do to rectify this? I don't have any other Office 2007 apps installed; I have Office 2003 Professional and the UI is *not* italic.

I've attached a picture of this problem:

Thanks =)

Hello,

Not sure if I am ont the right track but I wonder if this is actually Display Properties->Appearance setting?

I would go to check:
1-Desktop->Right Click->Properties->Appearance
2-Click Advanced
3-Select Menu in the Item drop down
4-Disable Italic button if it is already enabled.
5-Repeat #3 and #4 for Title Bars.

May be I would completely change the Windows and Buttons scheme to be Classic Style.

I solved the problem - my Segoe UI font seemed corrupted. I copied over the fonts from another machine and the italics are no more. I shall offer you the points, however, as it was after following your idea that I tried applying Segoe UI to another part of my system and it appeared Italic... without the Italic button being depressed =) So thank you
