Text is blurry with vista,just like clear type was with xp. useing lcd screen 1028x1024 resolution.Tried various suggestions from Google,different blogs threads there but no joy,seems many vista users have same problem.Any new ideas please?

Drivers?

Also, you don't really mean 1028 x 1024, that's almost square. Try 1024 x 768 or 1280 x 960.

oops sorry ,should have been 1280x1024,drivers all updated,seems this problem has been ongoing with all the beta testers,many blogs with different suggestions ie font size and the actual segoe ui font and font effects.

"Text is blurry with vista,just like clear type was with xp"

That's because cleartype is enabled by default in vista.

I have tried enabling and unticking cleartype, makes no diffference,helps abit to set font size to 8 but still not as sharp as xp

Are you video drivers the final Vista version, many are not? No consolation I know but I have found Vista to be as good, dae I say better for clarity.
