    Since buying a new Lenovo ideapad Y700, I've been having some weird scaling/blurring issues and Spyware Blaster is one of the affected programs. I was wondering if anyone else is having this issue and if there was a potential fix for it? Here's the screenshot:

    Thanks so much!

    Sweet, selecting "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" did the fix for SpywareBlaster. Do I need to keep this setting on permanently then? I'm just wondering what happens if Windows comes up with an update that fixes this issue in 6 months or something...Ha. Thanks!

    I would. If Microsoft issues an update on the issue, it will probably reset your tweak. In any case, bookmark the article for future use.

    You're welcome; take care!

    Will do. Also, weirdly enough, Spyware Blaster is the only program this fix worked for. If I do it to iTunes (which was just blurry, scaling fine), then it messes things up pretty bad even though the blurriness is fixed. In RapidMinor Studio (not blurry, but scaling issue), the "fix" doesn't do anything. In Firefox, the video playback options for website such as ESPN.com are super tiny and the fix does not work either. That's weird. Ha.

    The method for Windows 10 users at the bottom I'm not sure how that would work since my recommended is 250% and going to 100% would only make things smaller?

    You can always try it, then restart your PC, and if not satisfied, reverse the tweak process!
