Font are blurry in Internet Explorer 10, Windows 8

I'm using IE 10 in fresh Windows 8 Pro.


And font are blurry, i adjust ClearType and it still.


My Laptop ASUS K55VM, NVIDIA GT 630M, Intel HD 4000, Intel Core i5 3rd.

Well setting the font scaling back to 100%, as suggested in Microsoft's patronising response, worked for me (albeit in Win10, but I was seeing the problem in Win8 too).  True that some applications are blurry and some are clear, but those that are blurry are fixed by correcting the font scaling.

What makes this painfully apparent is choosing a bitmap font.  How can a bitmap font be blurry?  Well, by being post-scaled by 125%.

It requires a restart (in Win10) to work correctly.  Some applications got blurrier after I made the change, but came right after a restart.

However, all the text gets smaller (surprise surprise!!), and this smaller text makes the flaws in cleartype more apparent.  At 125% I was impressed at how much cleartype had improved since last I used it.  Actually it hasn't improved -- they were just using more pixels to render each letter.
