    So close and yet so far away.
    So, today after I deleted some folders on the root of my C:/ (and I have the system installed on E:/), about which I was sure were just some media, like games, music and folders left from some uninstalled/deleted games something went wrong.

    Now use any web browser (I tried Mozilla, Opera and Chrome) on various websites the font is bolded, for example all the comments on youtube look almost like this. Just the letters aren't that fat. Or on Gmail, the headings like mail, contacts, tasks and underneath it the inbox, sent...+ on the right side the name who sent the email and its title are all also bolded. This happens in Mozilla, in Opera and Chrome it's all instead in italics. And they seem to be of lighter colour, like more grey then normal fonts.

    Does anyone one know how this could have happened? And moreover how to fix it? Only Moorhuhn (a weird shootem up game) file was screaming that it includes files necessary to run Windows, but we all know how games sometimes say that. And I deleted those files off my bin too.

    EDIT: FIXED! Friend told me to go to fonts and click on reinstall all fonts, so that fixed it. [​IMG] When I tried installing the most used fonts it didn't work, but this did the trick. [​IMG]

    Sounds like something's messed with your global font settings. Check in Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Fonts, for any possible settings that might look wrong. It could also be one of the Ease of Access settings that's been triggered for some reason (find that in Appearance and Personalization too).
