    I have been using Vista for a couple of months.
    Recently I encountered a problem with Vista games. The games (Mahjong
    Titans; Minesweeper etc) have lost their fonts. Titles and tips have now
    very large fonts which do not fit in game screens/pop up tips.
    I would appreciate if I can get help to get the original fonts back.
    I am using the latest Nvidia drivers for my system (GeForce 7800GTX SLI)

    Thanks

    why it's not working.

    Dorth,

    I have solved the problem. Do you have Nvidia nTune installed. If yes,
    open the Control panel. Go to "Adjust Image Settings With Preview". Choose
    "Let the 3D application Decide". This should solve the problem. When I had
    the problem the setting was on "Use my preference emphasising QUALITY".

    Regards

    Joe

    I had the same problem, but did not bother look into it for a long time.
    This worked 'like a charm' again!
    Thank you for the post! Very useful!

    Great! Finally a solution! Thanks.

    But how come I couldn't find this on any troubleshooter wizard or FAQ? I
    mean, this is exactly the kind of stuff that one would expect to be there,
    and based on how old the previous messages in the chain are, there's been
    plenty of time to update help files with this info.
