Hi Due to a severe system crash - I have had to do a complete re-install of all my software etc. One thing I noticed when I started the pc up again (from a virgin state) was that the text did not look as clear as before. Then I remebered I had installed Clear Type before and I had to reinstall it again and all was well. If you have never heard of it - what it does it maximises your text clarity to your display monitor. Its freel available - just google for microsoft cleartype - its dead easy to implement and steps you through which text looks best on your screen. Sorry if I am teaching Granny to suck eggs - just trying to help. Dave, Oldham.
