Hi, i cannot believe i can't find a solution to this problem, it must be affecting a load of folk. I like to go on the betting exchanges but cannot go on them with the new Internet Explorer 7. This is because of the ridiculous font. The font is a lot bolder & wider & less clear than the previous IE6. It's not my PC or monitor, i've seen the same on all PC's that has IE7 installed. For example: a price written as 34 is impossible to differentiate with one written as 3.4 This is going to prove LETHAL if i use IE7. This new browser is supposed to be more secure with warnings of Phising attacks so i wouldn't mind installing it only if i can get the font less bold, thinner & narrower & clearer. IE6 font was perfect.
I've mucked with fonts in internet options & also with the 'Clear Type' facility that comes with the IE7. This has made no difference at all.
As i write, a windows update balloon keeps popping up saying "click here to install important updates". This is doing my head in because it hampers what i'm doing. Also, i cannot find out what it's going to update but can virtually guarantee it's going to install, yet again, the new IE7. It has installed it 3 times so far, then after it has finished i do a SYSTEM RESTORE to revert back to the original IE6 which is perfect for what i need.
I do not wish to turn off windows update for obvious reasons. I have tried Mozilla Firefox browser but this has several major flaws for what i need to do & is 'dangerous for me to use'. This is a problem that has just imposed itself & can do without. Is there any chance of me keeping IE6 & stopping windows update trying all the time to update to IE7 (without forfeiting other updates)? Or does someone know how to change the internet font into something reasonable?
