    Why does IE always have blurred text?

    Anyway to remove this? Ever since installing the new IE, the text seems to be a little blurred when trying to test my site out, What's the problem and how do I fix it?

    There is no problem, and this is something you can expect in all apps in the new version of Windows'. With IE7, MS just randomly decided everyone wished to have anti-aliasing on. How you can switch it off, I don't know.

    I think what you are saying is the ClearType font. I am not sure if you can turn it off for IE alone, but to enable and disable it in windows, just go to display -> appearance -> effect, and you'll see it there.

    Hi, I just checked, I don't have cleartype font enabled, so that shouldn't be the problem, or should it actually be enabled?

    If you are using a LCD display, I'd recommend switching it on, because that'll enhance the looks of the font a lot, I personally love it. However, if you have a CRT, then it might not look so good or as you call it "blurred", so just turn it on for a while, and see if you can adapt to it, and it's still largely dependant on you, to figure out if you want it or not.

    P.S. If you want to disable it, go to Internet Options -> Advanced, then go to the Multimedia portion and click off the "Use ClearType". That should do

    ClearType compared to "standard" display
    Be sure to tune ClearType, as without doing so, your text may look much worse than without the CT turned on.

    Thanks, but the text actually right now looks like cleartype in IE, when it's not even turned off, and I want it sharper than that. but anyway It doesn't matter, thanks all
