I have a new laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

Out of the box the system font size was set at 125% and all my applications were installed. Some applications had windows with prompts etc either corrupted or off the screen.

I have changed the system font size to 100% which has fixed the problem in many applications but not all. It appears as if some applications have picked up the 125% setting at installation and are not seeing the change.

Is this possible and is there a way to force all applications to reread the system font size?
