I suspect a windows patch deployed by a jr admin of mine caused some font issues with IE 8, and some other apps on a few windows 2003 r2 servers. Seem to have happen after patch day. What patch can i check for to remove? Or if not a windows update, what can cause this? If it is a patch, how can i remove this from WSUS as there are a few servers affected?

The issue of fuzzy or corrupted fonts has come up several times in here. There was a Microsoft Security Update issued (KB3013455) that caused this in some Vista and in some Server 2003 machines

 Unless it is a major issue, probably best you do not uninstall the update as Microsoft will probably issue a fix.

So, since this has been applied to several machines already, what course of action should i take to remediate those machines? Should I have my Jr Admin deploy the hot fix over the bad patch? Should I have him remove the bad patch? We did a scan in WSUS and it did not find the hot fix. How can we deploy the hot fix using WSUS?

You need to look at the Hot Fix notes to see if the first update needs to be installed. If they can manage it, Microsoft will have the fix install over the problem to fix it.
