Default fonts look bad :(

I am using this program in which the fonts suddenly look bad,
what i mean, is like
e.g. if i type an r, i get 3 dots, for an r, for an m i get a couple of dots and a single line in between.

can you guys tell me what is the problem, and how i could resolve it.

i did uninstall install the software but that did not work
i was wondering if i could locate the fonts, and see if somehow the size or something like that had been modified

what program are you using? what font are you trying to display? have you tried using the same font in a different app?
