Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm trying to help a friend with a weird problem. Tahoma fonts everywhere on his copy of XP SP3 show up in bold and Arial fonts show up in italics. He provided me with some examples.
That last one doesn't look too awkward to me but it's a little different than default, I guess. He says the pronounced italics is there on the "welcome" message as he starts up as well as Windows Media Player (which I guess both use Arial).
What kind of repair should be used for this? I found a topic with a similar problem but they recommended a System Restore Point. He doesn't have "System Restore" enabled so that's out of the question. Is there another method he can use short of a full reinstall?
