    I recently had Windows xp (SP2) reinstalled and the fonts seem to be very
    faint on many web pages and in Outlook Express, Microsoft Word and in text
    programs. It looks like faded text. How do I reset the default font to make
    it bold?
    Thank you.

    See my Q as of today " Printer Problems" I wonder if you have an HP
    Printer. Mine will not print black text from Word / Exell etc and if I do
    Web Page or email, the text is grey and faded. This happened about a year
    ago and I have just started to try to fix it again, after frustrating
    correspondence with HP. Now that I think of it, I probably installed Service
    Pack 2 around then?

    Try this Larry

    Right click on Desktop and select properties. Under Appearance tab click on
    Effects and make sure that Clear Type is selected under "Use the following
    method........................fonts." Hit OK, OK.

    I think I tried that but today the fonts look a little better.
    Maybe my eyes are better today.
