Can I ask, as its going to affect characters in Rhino, and its also interfering with my build time ! …having had this drive me nuts for three weeks since the build of this win7 pc, and with the guys at Nvidia looking into it, ( I have an GTX970) , if you are with win7 or 8, do you see just black text on screen in use of windows , word, internet, email etc, or do you see different coloured text, due to coloured edges varying with point size ?
I have just started with win7 64bit pro from XP and its a big difference and a shock to the system. In all the years of operating systems I have always seen black text, important when doing graphics, now with same monitor as XP its anything but I can type something and see in the word e.g felling the upright characters f ll i are green or red or blue etc ! In Outlook the text I type in a reply appears blue, the text in the attachment window green and the address name black. In the inbox opened emails subject line is green, unopened one (more bold) in purple brown.
Attached a zip file of the docx test page. Do note the lll lll shows up the different colours at different point sizes that I and others see, that same colour edges the verticals in the text I see on screen.

I see this, as does another with same brand of monitor (Eizo) and this time an Intel vid driver on laptop same screen res.:-
Text in win7 is a mess, anything but true black. I reckon its win7 at fault but with a friend with just black and an AMD I am not so sure.
…and from a friend, win8, even worse !
…another friend AMD vid card, win7 pro64, same res dpi as me. and just black text. so maybe the video card then ?
