The text in every part of my computer all of a sudden turned to bold.
I am using Windows XP Home Edition. I went to Microsoft's site to find
out how to solve the problem, and the whole page was bold and I could
not read it. Here are other examples:

1. Applications: In Macromedia Dreamweaver, the normal <p>text
here</b> appears in bold in the preview pane when using Macromedia

2. Operating Sytem: The "Start" text in my Start Button is more
cramped horizontally than I've ever seen.

3. Websites: The ordinary text in Google search results are so large
they appear to be headings. When I go to, what is normally
easy-to-read text in articles appears all bold.

4. Browsers: These problems are occuring in both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
There is no answer at this time.

You may have modified your Windows "Appearance" on accident.

You can review and modify it by right-clicking anywhere on your
desktop, and then choosing Properties.

The 4th tab, Appearance will show you the style, color scheme, and fot
size. Try changing them, it may be that simple.
