Hello

I just reinstalled windows 7 on my PC and noticed that after the install all text / fonts look really bad in browser and everywhere. It's like there is a weird aura surrounding the text and if I zoom 125% in chrome it looks okay but something is not correct. It used to look normal and I think I've had this problem before but I can't remember what I did. I have 1080p supporting TV and it's native res is 1920 x 1080 which I'm using right now. I have turned all overscan/scaling options to off in Nvidia control panel, tried multiple resolutions, I tried Cleartype app, I tried screen refresh rate between 50 and 60 but that didn't help. DPI scaling is set to 100% like it should be. I'm using the latest Nvidia drivers 442.19. What could be causing this?

It can't be the TV settings because I didn't change any settings on monitor, I just reinstalled windows and now all text looks fuzzy

I don't know what I did but my browser looks ok now but the text/font in windows looks pretty bad.. It's like there is a white shadow under the text and it is just hard to read and hurts my eyes

It's happening in windows/everywhere but the browser... I tried to mess around with cleartype and I think I got it fixed
