Microsoft Releases Update to Fix Blurred Text / Font Problem in Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) Under Windows Vista, Server 2008 and 7

If you are using Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) under Windows Vista, Server 2008, 7 or Server 2008 R2 and facing blurred text problem, here is a solution for you!

Microsoft has released an update to fix blurred text problem in Internet Explorer 9 on a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2.


Text that is displayed in the following core fonts in Windows Internet Explorer 9 appears blurred, when you compare it to text in Windows Internet Explorer 8:

Arial (10-point and 11-point)
Verdana (9-point and 10-point)
Tahoma (11-point and 13-point)


This issue occurs because of a design change to rendering is made in Internet Explorer 9. By default, Internet Explorer 9 uses sub-pixel positioned ClearType to render text by using DirectWrite, whereas Internet Explorer 8 uses whole-pixel positioned ClearType to render text by using the Microsoft Windows graphics device interface (GDI).


Download and install the required update using following links:
Windows Server 2008 (IA-64)
Windows 7 (32-bit)
Windows 7 (64-bit)
Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit)
Windows Server 2008 R2 (IA-64)
