Hi there
Have seen 3 threads that are close to this problem, but not the same

a couple hours ago I noticed that my system fonts had suddenly changed. They have a black outline around each of the text characters.

I have tried changing themes, wallpaper, font display, doing a system restore, running antivirus software and taking the advice on the other threads including altering system properties (appearance: effects and advanced options)

nothing seems to work and it is very frustrating and very difficult to read (I had to turn the bold option on under properties: appearance: advanced options)

Would really appreciate anybody's advice!

as an addendum to my above post, all the fonts in all my programs are now different. I ran a full systems can be sure of the viruses and everything is clear.

I'm hoping this is one of those little unchecked button issues :-)

Again, would really appreciate any insight or assistance
