Hi,
When I open an email that arrived to day it diplays all wrong.
Even while I am writing now my text is all fuzzy.
However in the topic title it displays perfectly.
And if I opn an email from yesterday it is fine too.

This also happened on another website i posted a message on.

Anyone any idea what is going on?

Is it to do with the web or my fonts or what?


Please help me asap.


Sorry if its in the wrong section it might be an internet/email thing!

I am uploading a pic to show you.

Wow, this is an interesting one; never seen it before. I am assuming you are using Vista. If so, let's try this:

1. Click Start > Control Panel > Fonts.
2. Right-click in whitespace (not on a file) and choose Install New Font...
3. In the Add Fonts dialog box, navigate to c:\Windows\winsxs\Backup. The list of fonts above should populate.
4. Click Select All, then click Install.

Next, try these steps:

1. Right click on the desktop and choose Personalize.
2. Click on Window Color and Appearance.
3. If you have Aero enabled, you’ll have to click on Open classic appearance properties for more color options.
4. Click Effects... and check the box next to Use the following method to smooth the edges of screen fonts if it is not already checked.
5. Choose ClearType from the drop-down box and click OK on all the open windows.

See if this works. :)

Hey jayjay,

Though it's a long list, there should be a Backup folder underneath the Winsxs directory heading. Please scroll down until you reach it and continue the steps detailed above. :)
