A friend asked me to fix his Chrome browser complaining that the fonts are blurry. I researched and   found out that after the update 37 that issue happened a lot. I found 3 different fixes on line.

I deleted and reinstalled Chrome Browser, I used two different parameters, I changed the DPI from 125 to 100...nothing tha fonts still look blurry. He is using Vista.

How can I solve this problem ?  I am running out of options ....:(

Thank you

Try native screen resolution (Control Panel, Display) and use 100% scaling. Blurry fonts normally occurs because of non-native screen resolution.

If already native resolution and If already 100%, download the same or newer video driver and reinstall the video and chipset drivers.

What is a native resolution and how can I find it out ? how can I verify if it is already set for native resolution ?

Thanks,

Look under Screen Resolution settings for "Recommended" and set to that.

I am stuck, I tried every possible solution I found on line. Chrome doesn't improve the blurriness.

What should I do to fix this ? I also attempt to restore but there is no restore point created in this Vista computer :(

For Vista, there is an issue with one update (KB3013455) which can cause font corruption in some circumstances.  See this Microsoft thread that describes this.

http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-windows_update/kb3013455-ms15-010-causes-font-corruption/8640d38d-19bd-46b6-9af0-6213c05107d3

KB3013455 is a security update and uninstalling it may not be a good idea. Microsoft will likely issue a fix.
