    KB3013455 does affect Windows 7 (at least "starter" that I am using). I am unable to uninstall (it does not appear in the list of installed updates where uninstalling would be an option). I also never thought to restore my computer to an older time point until Feb. 17, 2015, became unavailable in the list of possible restore points.

    Any idea how to fix this issue? The fonts are irritatingly hard to read.

    I have the THIN font issue and have found many posts that fix the issue and I see that MS has the KB 3037639 fix…BUT…I am on Windows 7, not Vista or server etc. So how do us W7 users fix the thin font issue? It is ridiculous how much time I have wasted finding this fix. Help? Anyone?
