Does the coating on my monitor screen affect the picture quality. I washed the screen with windex and i'm not sure wether i damaged the coating. All the coating is is anti-static right? Nothing I should worry about for image quality? I have a NEC Multisync FE770 Flat screen monitor (CRT).

Windex should be fine. Manufacturers generally say you should not clean a screen that contains any of the following:

ammonia, wax or abrasives

Hope this helps

I have an NEC MultiSync FE700+ flat screen CRT and have been using
plain Windex on it for all most two years, about once a month or so.

I've not noticed any damage to the screen, resolution, or anything else.

Enjoy

The main ingredient in Windex = ammonia, I use vinegar & water on my MultiSync FE700+

I use Windex wipes with vinegar here. There is no ammonia in them (clearly says so on package). Works greats.
CRTs are fine being cleaned this way.
LCDs are another story.
