    In MSN convo's everything the person im talking to is italicized, Google searches are italicized and when im browsing sites like GameFAQs, most of the font there is italicized.

    Anyone know how to fix this? I already tried a system restore but that didnt work : \

    Did you change the language settings to Italian?

    Hmmmm....

    It sorta fixed itself. Google and GameFAQs is fixed but MSN convos are still messed up.

    People with Arial font seems to have all their text italicized. And I tried it too and it italicized my Arial font.

    Hmmm....

    try this but im not sure if it will fix your italics. i dont know where that weird setting is lol

    this will reset your theme (a bunch of stuff like wallpaper changed)

    right clicking an empty space in your desktop to open Display Properties
    save your current theme as, for example jester13xptheme for a backup
    under theme at the dropdown menu, select windows xp, press apply and wait

    this will reset your theme (a bunch of stuff like wallpaper changed)

    if you have something in your old theme that you wanted or it didnt fix the italics go back to display properties and dropdown menu for browse and select jester13xptheme, press apply and wait

    It probably just has something important to say.

    if it were important, wouldn't it be in all caps and be followed by "!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111" or bolded? or is it narrating?

    Little Shinji skipped around in glee, blissfully ignorant of the dark truth behind the italics...
