ok, yesterday and today yahoo kept bolding my font for some reason and yet its not set to bold, or arial black in the yahoo messenger preferences, for some reason in the conversation window all it sees is arial black.

my font in the conversation window SHOULD BE set to arial 12 point.

I've uninstalled, rebooted, and reinstalled.

now.. I know its not the font file itself, if it was, skype desktop would be doing it too, as would a few other things that use it.
