Hi guys!

I have a font problem on my Windows XP professional.
When any software uses some kind of system font, it is a bit to big. Looks like it is one or two pixels to big, og maybe in bold?

This error shows up in some softwares, like in buttons and some texts.
Its also there when a software crash, in the window that pops up asking if I want to send the error or Microsoft.

Websites, word and stuff is just like it used to be.

Can anyone help?

Thanks!!

I'm on an computer running XP Home but I think this would apply to XP pro as well ...

Right click on the the desktop itself and select "Properties" from the pop-up menu.

Click on the "Appearance" tab.

You can select Normal, Large or Extra Large font size settings. You can also click the "Advanced" button to be able to choose fonts and font sizes for several specific text display functions in Windows.

Thanks for the tip, but it does not help.
I'm not able to change that text. Seems like it may be a deeper system / font failure.

The problems started once, when I open the fonts folder. Did not do any changes, just opend the folder. Then suddenly, all fonts changes. Even the START button got a hand written font. But after a system reboot, most of the problems went away. Just the one problem left.

Any other ideas?
