    Go to Control Panel. search for Fonts Settings, and try restoring the default font settings- Do it from 100%

    Is that the only app that does it? Maybe it's just the program.

    Well, the 100% setting in Displays should have done it - Did you reboot, you have to reboot, or at least log off and log back on. If you have done that, go back and check to see if it is still 125%- Set it back to 100 and hit "Apply" then you will have to log off and log back on.

    DPI:
    100% is 96dpi and after setting this back (check first) it should already be back to normal.

    Have a look here and related tutorials:
    Advanced Appearance Settings - Change Text Size for Items in Windows 8

    Text seems to be bold in your screenshot.
    Message Boxes option: If 9pt is default, make sure Bold is unchecked.

    Yes, that is it, it's bolded text.

    And you probably neglected to check the drop-down box for the different items. Uncheck the BOLD, set the Message Boxes to 11 pnts.
