Fuzzy Courier New and Times new Roman fonts in WindowsVista

I'm on a laptop with Windows Vista and a 1366 x 768 resolution. That's the maximum and there's no real way to get any different aspect ration. About a week ago there was some sort of Windows update that rendered my courier new and times new roman fuzzy. Maybe that's not what caused the issue, but it happened around the same time. It looks like the horizontal lines are missing. Here take a look:


Courier New



Lucina Console



I tried downloading a new courier new, but its still the same issue. I've also messed around with the Cleartype setting. Turning it to standard does make the font look clearer, but makes every other font look awful.


Any suggestions? I've updated all of the resolutions and its still the same. There is no recommended resolution.


Thanks in advance!
