    All of a sudden, a select few applications became very blurry. It's kind of hard to explain.

    Example 1:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Exampe 2:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Example 3:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I've tried both reinstalling Java and my video drivers.
    Any solutions?

    or I suppose you could try checking your video out cables.

    Well, this is different... Umm, try a system restore point, or if you dont want to do that, roll back your driver before the one that this started in.

    @Rydian:
    I don't know.
    I'll have to try it later, but uh, i'm sure it will.

    @pocchama1996:
    No, i don't think it's a virus.
    It only happens to a few apps.

    @Game01:
    That's only if the text is blurry.
    But in this case, the whole app is.

    can't find something 'bout blurred apps.
    but found another blurry java control panel. unfortunately it's not solved.

    tried looking for blurred java related apps but i didn't find anything else sorry.

    however try getting the latest drivers for everything.

    Woah, we need to take it one step at a time.

    Try it in safe mode. This is a big step in the process of elimination so we can see where the problem lies.

    Uninstall your video drivers and then restart in normal mode so windows loads up the default ones instead. If it's not blurry, it's something either with your video drivers settings (check the control panel and the nvidia/ati settings), or a third-party program that's fucking with them.

    This sounds very familiar, but I can't remember why... I'll post again if I remember.

    If it was the cables then why would the screen shots be blurry for us.

    They're not entirely blurry anyway. Pic 1, the Install button is clear in jDownloader settings. Pic 2, the OK button is clear. Pic 3, the headers are clear.

    This reminds me a lot of some of those fancy settings in Windows, but my quick look through Control Panel didn't jog my memory.

    Alright, if it's not the drivers it may be a virus (though, whoever made it has a sense of humor).

    If you haven't run a scan with your anti-virus, I suggest you boot in safe mode and do so.
