I am NOT suggesting there is anything wrong in asking for advice on the problem, on more than one site.
However, may I ask that, even if the answer is provided on another of the sites on which you have posted, would you still be kind enough to respond here on our site

Applies to all editions of Windows 7
Make text easier to read using ClearType
ClearType font technology makes the text on your screen almost as sharp and clear as text that's printed on paper. It's on by default in this version of Windows.
To get the full benefit of ClearType, you need a high-quality, flat-panel monitor, such as LCD or plasma. Even on a CRT monitor, you might get some improvement in readability with ClearType.
To turn on ClearType
- Open the ClearType Text Tuner by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type cleartype, and then click Adjust ClearType text.
- On the first page of the tuner, select the Turn on ClearType check box, click Next, and then continue clicking Next until you reach the last page.
- On the last page of the tuner, click Finish to turn on ClearType. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
AND yes I did read that you had twice reset it and I read that you wanted to know how to make it stay that way.
However you should also appreciate that I have no way of knowing which part of the process you carried out. as all you said was that you had twice fixed it by adjusting clear type.
Therefore my first offer of assistance to you was to suggest that you followed the whole of the procedure for setting it.
May I ask you to remember that I, together with all of my colleagues, provide our help free, (we work on the site because we enjoy it), however as it is free help, your response worded more on the lines of
"Thank you, but I have already tried all of that procedure",
may have been a little more appropriate.

I have just done the adjustment again AND CLICKED ON FINISH. The change did not take effect until I relaunched Chrome. It is the same as I have done before, proceeded to the end and clicked on FINISH.

There have been reports that the problem is solved on SOME computers using the Beta Channel
That is tested to some degree, but not fully and then there is the development channel and finally the canary.
Here is the link
However please read carefully the cautions and whether or not it will solve the problem on your computer is of course very much a TRY it and see.

When I posted, it seemed that the effect is not clearly seen in the attachment. I CAN provide a smaller area with clearer image of the poor font, but I can not see a way to 'withdraw' the less suitable upload.
