    AMHD setting has changed on my browser.
    I am not sure what I did,but I did delete some programmes which I wasn't using anymore to clear some space on my PC.

    But since then my net browser shows all fonts on the Desk here as in italics, why is that?

    And the fonts have also changed on Google search page too... is that something I did or did they change their page?:confused:

    Please Help me get back the orignal setting...

    This should help


    Suddenly all the web pages display text in Italics?

    Thanks to MVP Vincenzo Di Russo [Internet Explorer] for this tip:

    This happens if a particular font (used by the web page) is missing from the system. There are four Verdana in Windows\Fonts folder (Verdana Bold, Verdana Bold Italic, Verdana and Verdana Italic). If those font files are missing in your system, try copying the four Verdana fonts from another computer with XP and installing them on your PC. Then start IE.

    Note that this problem can also happen if one or more of your other mainstream fonts (Arial, Tahoma and others) are missing. Here is the list of default fonts that are shipped with Windows XP. Missing fonts can be restored from the Windows CD.

    Thanks Ben.

    Is there anyway to get the fonts through the net.
    I am not sure if we still have the Windows CD... must be around here somewhere.

    I believe that most are available online.

    Is there an easier way to find out which fonts are missing on my PC?

    TRy removing Veranda Italic from the folder and seeing if that helps.
    Might be a simple case of it not selecting the correct version.
