Default Subpixel smoothing?

How do I adjust the subpixel smoothing of fonts in Windows XP? They seem to be messed up, the edges of fonts are a bit blurry. In Gnome I can adjust whether its just anti-aliased or subpixel smoothed, and I can adjust whether my monitor is RGB or BGR and mine is BGR but this seems to be set at RGB. How do I change it to BGR?

Also, why isn't there a refresh button in IE7?

Ohh I see it now. Debian is a Linux distribution...

You don't know about the subpixel smoothing though?

Do you mean turning off AA in xp? its normally off my default but the settings is in the appearance tab in the display properties then click effects and there's a check box for use the following method to smooth edges change it from clear type to standard or try turning it off.
