    Display issues after in-game crash

    Hi everyone,

    I was saving and exiting a game (one I have had for quite a while and run with no issues) when it crashed, which isn't all that unusual. After returning to my desktop, my fonts were different and larger on desktop icons, context menus, file browsers, and web browsers. I have some pictures here: Attachment 63396Attachment 63397Attachment 63398

    Prior to this incident I had windows 8 default settings for all of this. Some odd things that happened prior to this crash -
    • The number pad + and - keys stopped responding appropriately
    • The escape key functioned as the Windows key, exiting me directly to the start menu
    • NumLock acted odd, but I'm not sure exactly what key it was acting as

    Things I have tried so far:
    • Restarting
    • Booting the same game and exiting sucessfully
    • Went in edited text and window size settings in control panel > display
    • Checked accessibility settings, all were off
    • Restored font settings to default

    Also, while writing this post IWD_Aud_Device_02 just installed of its free will. Not sure if that means anything.

    If you could provide any guidance on just how to get these things back to the default, I would be very grateful.

    UPDATE: Microsoft Word has oddly large fonts too. I have also checked my resolution settings.
