    Hey guys, I'm at my wits end over here. Have tried Googling but to no avail. Since installing Win 10 my fonts on certain sites are whacked. I'm not sure if there was some kind of font corruption or what. I first noticed this when starting Steam. Then as I started browsing various sites... [H] included. I've enclosed a couple of pics so you can see what I'm referring to. ANY help or suggestions would be appreciated. I already tried rebuilding fonts in Win 10.

    Is it everywhere or only in Chrome?

    They released an updated Nvidia driver pack yesterday to fix some font issues.

    DOWNLOAD WIN x64

    I just tried it in Edge and everything is fine, so yes... only in Chrome apparently. I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome, but no go.

    Thanks for the Driver link, but install fails.

    It appears to be just Arial.

    Finally got the drivers to install... no help. I guess I will just use Edge. LOL

    Solution for fix for anybody else having this problem:

    type in chrome://flags as the URL.
    Find Disable DirectWrite and Disable.

    Relaunch Chrome and fixed!

    DirectWrite is retarded. On my system, it makes all the fonts look bolded.
