    Good morning. I have IE9 running on six machines as of yesterday and the font clarity is outstanding. Check your screen's DPI and confirm the "Use Windows XP Scaling" (or words to that effect) is checked. On every installation of mine where I changed the screen's DPI the XP scaling box lost its check mark and the fonts were blurry inside some dialog boxes. Once XP scaling was re-selected, fonts became sharp once again.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
