Hi, I'm having problems with various programs that I've had work on other computers fine. The UI gets crowded to the point where I cannot click on what I need to, or type what I need to, and in some cases I have to use another program entirely. This has happened to over 10 programs that I recall, and the 'severity' of the bugginess runs from this:

which isn't bad, mainly cut off unclickable words and boxes, to this:

which is completely and literally unusable (I also need to get this particular one working soon, so if there's a quick fix it would be really appreciated). I see a lot more of the second type, I can provide more examples if asked.
I enclosed the dxdiag in hopes that that might help. The one and only thing I might see that would cause this is I have a custom theme, but I've disabled it with no results.

What's the display DPI? Check out the value in
Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced > General

If the value is not "Normal size (96 DPI)", then switch to that value, reboot, and see if the problem disappears.
