:DELL laptop fuzzy display fix

For some reason Dell is shipping their laptops with a "low resolution" setting in Internet Explorer (IE). When you browse the Internet, all the pictures are blurry, fuzzy and really quite nasty looking. After ton's of research, I finally found the fix and ran it on quite a few laptops already. It does work, but you need to edit the registry. I strongly suggest making a backup of the registry first and then making the change, just in case.

You just need to change one registry setting located at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

Change "UseHR" to dword:00000000. It is probobly set to 1 right now.

Reboot and everything is clear!
