Default Text has become italic...

My computer is doing some weird things at the moment. Everything on google is now in italic and on msn, the messages people send me are italic. Don't know if this is a google thing, internet thing or computer thing but hopefully someone can help me out?

Thanks in advance...

arial is installed by default. Which means that someone or something has messed with your system.
