This may sound stupid, but since my computer was "fixed" by those wonderful folks at Compaq,....(long pause),....my default text is now in italics! It's annoying reading message boards with slanted text, and the text is that way also in my startup programs such as MacAfee and Spyware Blaster. What do I do about it? I'm sure there's a simple answer to this.

Hi catfish33

I've posted a thumbnail to save some typing. If you look at the Display Properties box (right click the desktop>Properties) , you will notice on the last line, right above the Apply button there is a "/" button. This turns the italics on and off.

That's a little better, but I don't know which font to put there. What is the equivalent of plain text?

What is your operating system? With that information we can tell you what the default is, but I'm pretty sure it Times New Roman or Arial. Beyond that its really a matter of personal preference.

Don't know what to tell you about the Italics unless its part of the font but the default 98SE font MS Sans Serif (Western) - size 10.

You can extract Shell32.dll from your OS CD to reset the default for everything if you want. Go to C:Windows\System and let us know what version you have currently.

That looks pretty much like the defaults. Have a look at win.ini. My 98SE machine has the following section:

[Fonts]

[FontSubstitutes]
Helv=MS Sans Serif
Tms Rmn=MS Serif
Times=Times New Roman
Helvetica=Arial
MS Shell Dlg=MS Sans Serif

The MS Shell line is probably what your looking at. Can you extract shell32.dll?

My win.ini has the Font Substitutes directly ahead of Compatibility (I only copied the relevant portion).

Yours is at the very end where its likely being ignored. I wonder if you moved it up would it make a difference?

If you want to try that, open win.ini and save it as win.old and close it. Open win.ini again and cut and paste the fonts in as above. Make sure the spaces are the same. Reboot and see what happens. If neccessary you can delete the new win.ini and rename win.old back to win.ini
