    Just downloaded IE7 and it seems website text is "blurry" and a little harder to read. Any ideas? Thanks, HH

    Have you checked your VGR focus?

    Or you can press Ctrl key and roll mouse wheel to adjust print size.

    I eventually went back to IE6. Hope 7 works out for you.

    Thanks, tried the cntrl and roll and it was cool but after IE7 the text size hasn't changed, it's just less defined. If that makes sense. Thanks. HH

    Did the restore and now back to former version of IE. Problem now is that McAffee Virus Protection is FUBAR. Can't reinstall, can't open. Constant error message. Please help! Thanks in advance, HH

    The new IE7 uses by default aggressive font anti-aliasing, which looks lousy on LCD monitors. You can turn it off in options.

    Actually, I think it looks quite good on an LCD monitor. More defined.

    You can disable it by right clicking on your desktop/properties/appearance/effects/where it talks about smoothing, select standard from the drop down. (IE7 puts it at Clear type by default.

    Perhaps if you use an analog connection, not on DVI. I want sharp and crisp, not shades of grey simulating roundness of edges.
    I certainly did, the first thing after downloading IE7. Not that I use IE7, but I keep it in case some brain-dead site or device must use it.
