  1. Hi, many fonts in IE7 are in italics when they shouldn't be, I don't know what has caused this at all

    I will try a system restore if there isn't a solution, but could anyone explain why this has happened? Do I need to reinstall any fonts? Is there anything I can do in internet options??

    Thanks

    Open IE
    On the Toolbar (Press Alt on the keyboard to show if missing)
    Click on:
    Tools
    Internet Options
    Fonts (this is in the General Tab - the first one)
    Language script=Latin based
    Select "Times New Roman"
    Select " Courier New"
    Ok
    OK
    Restart IE

    :suspiciou ...or just restart, seems to be working now?!?

    I tried exactly that kimsland to no avail. I don't understand what caused it to go in italics in the first place. I had previously just uninstalled two games (Metal gear solid, Metal gear solid 2) from my PC, and I wonder if that has anything to do with the font being removed??? But for it to work fine after the standard "switch it off switch it on" trick is confusing
