Today I let WinXP update itself, and Internet Explorer 7 was installed. Compared to IE6, all text in webpages (and html emails in Outlook) look fuzzy; The address bar font looks fine and crisp, it's just the text within the webpages (and emails). Anyone know how to fix this?

Found the answer: Cleartype under Tools icon|Internet options|Advanced|Multimedia...

...turning it off, it removes the fuzziness after restarting IE.

Which begs the question: Why is it called Cleartype?????

   I tried ClearType in Vista using IE7 and it made no difference for me.
   WinXP responds differently.  Yesterday, WinXP offered to upgraded IE6 to IE7, so I did.  The first time I used IE7 it offered to set certain settings, one of them being ClearType.  When it had done so, the type turned fuzzy (it is not a real bad fuzzy but not as sharp as without ClearType).
