Might be a bit late to post this, but if ClearType ****es you off that much, why not give gdipp a shot instead? http://code.google.com/p/gdipp/

Anyone who loves Tahoma needs to be taken outside and shot......... repeatedly!!!!!!!

Same with Comic Sans!!!!!!

As for Cleartype, never had a problem with it, although tbh, on some monitors, LCD and CRT it does look awful. But switching the font back to Tahoma is just wrong.


Nice "stop liking what i don't like" mentality. I've always been very fond of Tahoma without Cleartype, and ever since the first visual styles editor came for Vista, i've replaced my Segoe ui with Tahoma completely. Same did i with Windows 7.

Feels good man.

Megaupload, the site on which I was hosting Windows Aero (Tahoma Font), has been taken down by the US government. You can read more about it here: http://techland.time...haring-website/. Unfortunately Neowin will no longer let me edit my original post, so I'm posting the new download links in this reply.

Thank you Eric! This is the best tool for Win 7! I have spent so far two weeks to eliminate Segoe UI without luck, but finally i found your comment!
On the other i would like to ask you to make an update :blush: . Tahoma at 8pt on a 22" LCD (full HD) is too small. Is it possible to change all Tahoma from 8pt to 10pt? I prefer manual install, maybe it helps you! Please make a Tahoma 10pt version also!

I'm sorry to bump this but for some reason  after more than a year of using it, maybe due to some critical update to Windows7, the original file no longer works. The system considers aero is 'disabled' if said msstyle file is in use. When i put back the original file, i have full Aero back.

Try installing this: http://www.syssel.ne...eme.php?lang=en

After that try to apply the theme again ;)

This is pretty neat. I'll have to throw an old Windows 7 machine together and see how this looks on my old CRT.
