We have a locally developed web application is our school district.
Runs fine on hundreds of machines, but having problem rendering correctly on one workstation.  Font is extra large, causing overlap and objects are unreadable.
IE8.
Objects are page do use absolute positioning and this will not change.
Workstation in question has IE font size set to normal.
Any guidance would be most appreciated.

tools--> Internet Options --> Advanced tab --> (Bottom right side, reset button)
Also clear all temp files and cookies
