I have recently noticed a degeneration of the small text (below 8 font) on some websites. Text that was previously clear has become broken up and unreadable. Including that on my AOL home page. I have tried changing the resolution of my monitor which improves things a bit, but the letters remains fragmented, as though broken up. I have a Belinea TFT monitor and run Windows XP pro.
Apparently some browsers can become unstable on some sights if CCleaner is used with the browser open resulting in the effect you are getting. The answer is to close all browsers and run Crap Cleaner again.
