Lost Desktop Definition

I have been playing an old DOS game and after returning to the desktop the fonts seem to be weak.
It is hard to explain but where the letters (in the taskbar etc) stood out they now seem to be faint.

I have an Nvidia card and have looked at the properties but cannot see any obvious problem.

It is only trivial but I would like to get to the bottom of it.

I have tried re-booting but to no avail.

If you're using XP it could be that ClearType has been switched off somehow - Control Panel/Display/Appearance, click Effects, tick Smooth Edges of screen fonts, select ClearType.

Just checked that - all okay but thanks anyway
