Hi Tiras25,

This looks very much like a resolution or dpi setting to me. Can I first get you to check that the DPI is set to 100%. On the desktop right click and select "screen resolution".

On the window that pops up there is an option at the bottom of the page "Make text and other items larger or smaller". I want you to click on that and check that it is set to 100%. If that looks ok then go back and check that the resolution is set to what Windows recommends for you computer.

Let me know how you go there.

Thanks Stumbow.
Yes, it set to "smaller 100%"
As for resolution is to the highest one 1600x900 recommended.

Looks like a problem with font smoothing (ClearType) that isn't configured properly.

See http://www.microsoft.com/typography/ClearTypePowerToy.mspx Microsoft Typography - ClearType Tuner PowerToy

Windows 7 users should take advantage of the built-in ClearType tuner found in the Windows Control Panel under Appearance and Personalization to tune their ClearType settings.
