we have been running windows server 2008 Terminal Services for a good 4 years now with no issues.

Suddenly came in this morning and all the users font has changed to almost like a fax type font, this appears to be everywhere, Emails word etc.

Is there anything that I can change to get this back to normal for all users?

It seems that the recent KB3013455 update may be the culprit for this issue.

Microsoft acknowledge this in the KB article for this update: https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3013455
After you install security update 3013455, you may notice some text quality degradation in certain scenarios. The problem occurs on computers that are running the following operating systems:
Windows Server 2008 SP2
Windows Server 2003 SP2
Windows Vista SP2
Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.
The only known fix at this time is to uninstall this update. Keep in mind though that this is considered a critical update which was released to address vulnerabilities within Windows.
This security update resolves one publicly disclosed and five privately reported vulnerabilities in Microsoft Windows. The most severe of the vulnerabilities could allow remote code execution if an attacker convinces a user to open a specially crafted document or visit an untrusted website that contains embedded TrueType fonts.
I would advise that you weigh up the security risks before deciding to uninstall the update.
