    You can just follow this link. A "tick" in a box and it's OK for me now. I hope, it works for others, too.

    K, I have found the problem and the solution.

    Win8.1 released version does NOT LIKE to have the text size changed. This applies to both the desktop and BROWSERS. For instance, going to the Display page and increasing the text size will cause burred text. So will going to a browser and using CNTL+ mouse wheel to enlarge the browser screen. The browser now becomes blurry (I verified this). The FIX is to check the box on the display section called "Let me choose One Scaling Level". That should fix both issues.

    BTW, loading in a new graphics driver will RESET the resolution back to the default, "fixing" the problem.
