Default Windows Problem

I am having a slight problem with windows, It boots up fine and loads fine, but the "Start" text is all fuzzy and blurred and when i open internet and search something on any search engine it doesnt display most of the text and also the title bar of every window e.g. Top bar of every windows saying what it is "My Documents" this is missing.

Can anyone help.

First scan for spy/malware... Then install updated video drivers, or repair the OS, if the spy/malware removal does not help.

check your resolution (start / control panel / Apperance and Themes / Display and click the Settings tab)

Windows default resolution is usualy 640 x 480, or 800 x 800. This makes everything fuzzy and not fit your monitor. The lower resolution can create those symtoms with some monitors. (mine)

pm me some screenshots if you have the time
