I agree with Bob, that Faststone font type and size is not stock settings, so something has been changed along the way. The Help file seems fine to me, so that's a mystery.
If you go to Control Panel > Display, (or right click the Desktop then Personalize), there are a lot of options available to customize the look and feel of Windows 7, including font type, size, colors and so on.
Admittedly it is not as easy as it was in XP, but all the options are still there. There are so many options that affect individual sections of the visible windows, it is difficult to track down what has changed, and what to change it back to. But changes made here are global, in that they affect every application, and not just some programs but not others, unless a particular programs developer has chosen certain font types, sizes colors etc.
If you have applied Windows Themes to this Windows 7 then This may cause the effect you see. But you would know if you have applied a different theme to the default one.
Bob's comment about registry cleaners refers to a continuing problem we see in these forums. Users use these registry cleaners and 'optimizers' not realising that they can do unexpected damage to the registry. We always suspect the use of registry cleaners when odd changes are reported.
How to access Appearance options in Windows 7;
Open that Display from the Control Panel. Then find "Personalization" at the bottom and click that.
In the new page, click Windows Color. In the new page, click the "Advanced appearance settings". A smaller, XP style window will open.
Click the "Item" pull down arrow and you will see a whole range of options where font size, type, and color can be changed.
I would be very cautious what is changed here because you can very quickly make too many changes at once, don't like the results, then forget what has been amended.
There are other options in the previous Display pages, eg in the first page there is "Set custom text size (DPI)". You could try that, but make a note of what it was before making any changes.
Also, if one of these pages, is a link to "Ease of Access Center" options if you need to have a look at those, but that is in the Control Panel anyway.
