    When I was trying to make my XP SP3 look like Vista, I changed something for the font.
    I used Movefile and a script. When the computer restarted, the font had changed, but is far too big and looks terrible.
    I didn't save a system restore point :(
    And I have tried changing the font size in 'Display Settings', then 'Appearance'. And I have tried changing the DPI setting and the 'Display Settings', 'Settings', then 'Advanced'.
    Nothing. :( I really want everything put back to normal. How do I reset the fonts back to the standard XP size and style?
    Or if possible, just to reduce the system font size.

    I used these instructions: http://www.ghacks.net/2008/04/11/fully-replace-windows-xp-fonts-with-windows-vista-fonts/

    heeaar05, You should have set a System Restore point like the instructions stated before you made the change. You could try the reg file fix line 249 (left column) "Set Default XP Font Back to Tahoma" at the link below. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.


    Can't guarantee that it will fix your problem so it's your call.
