Environment
Windows 7

Cause
There is a bug in Windows 7 where in, if you have a high resolution screen at install time, Win7 will install a larger font set (125%) by default. If you then choose go back to the standard font size (100%), Windows will keep some of the large fonts even though everything else is adjusted for standard fonts, causing programs that use these fonts to break because the text will not always fit inside the Interface.

Resolution
Before making any changes to the registry be sure to make a backup.

By editing the Windows registry you can get the original, intended fonts back:

1) Open the start menu and type regedit and then press Enter.

2) Locate the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

3) Find the value MS Sans Serif 8,10,12,14,18,24

4) Change from SSERIFF.FON to SSERIFE.FON

5) Find MS Serif 8,10,12,14,18,24

6) Change from SERIFF.FON to SERIFE.FON

7) Finally find Courier 10,12,15

8) Change from COURF.FON to COURE.FON

9)  Restart your system in order for the changes to take effect!
