Text has totally messed up.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all.

so, i boot into my system today to find that the text in windows Live messenger has gone goofed

edit - (ok, imageshack sucks. I've attached a screen to this post)

It appears smaller then usual, and just generally messy. (no, it's appearance isn't due to jpeg compression, thats what it looks like)

Thats not all, though.

The text in Left 4 Dead 2 also has this appearance. I assume all my other games are effected too.

The only text that appears fine is stuff within my browser, other sites etc. Also, desktop icons and things also appear fine.

Wth is going on? If i find out Live Messenger is to blame it's so being uninstalled.

Why not just reinstall? It's not that hard...

*sigh* Because i've already tried to reinstall...

Apparently, my font to my contacts is really small, yet on my screen, it's fine (Apart from being widely spaced apart and just ugly looking) I tried changing the font size in Live and although itm akes it bigger, it doesn't effect what my contact see's.

It also increases the size of my contacts text.

I'm truely sick to death of Live Messenger, if all my contacts didn't use it i'd have removed it years ago.

Here's a better picture i took, it's not noticable really unless you make the photo full screen.

Compare the "change theme" box to that of the browsing window, notice the changes in font and clarity of buttons. You'll see what i'm talking about then - live is fugly.
