    My fonts have been messed with


    I have a program (it was written in Visual Basic 6) that I've used for years , including the last 6 months or so on Window 10. Today I started it and lo and behold the fonts have been changed! This is a screen shot from my Windows 7 computer:

    Is there a way to get things back to normal?

    I'm no geek but have you tried a system restore? It might owrk - it might not. But it's worth a go.

    Thanks puntz, it worked as I suspected it would. I wanted to avoid that as it is only a temporary solution, the next upgrade will have the same problem I'm afraid.

    This is bizarre! I didn't check the build version before I performed the System Restore (my bad), I restored the system to a version before the 6/17/2016 update. Now when I check the build version it is the latest build: 1511 version 10586.420 and the font on the calculator is fine!
