It is possible the zoom feature has changed it.  Press and hold CTRL and 0 <-- number.  This will reset the zoom back to default.

I would always start with the simple solutions. If the blur is always on the same part of the screen, you may have an almost invisible smear (you may only see soime colour change when you move in the relation to the screen). Give it a clean.

 

If it is when a particular font is used you may have changed your screen resolution away from the native resolution. The native resolution is where each pixel in the image relates to a pixel on the screen. Changing the resolution away from native will result in pixels being dropped to fit the screen size. Generally the native resolution is the maximum windows will allow you to set.

If there is a problem with the screen, it will also appear when the display is not showing a web page. Does the same effect occur on a word processor or spreadsheet document? If so, you could suspect the screen - are the "certain portions" always in the same location?

 

If the fuzzy text only appears in a browser, which browser? Does the same occur with a different browser?

 

Several settings could make text appear fuzzy - screen resolution, display DPI, and ClearType spring to mind. It is possible for example to have ClearType not enabled in Display Properties, but enabled for web text in the browser.
