I have Typing Instructor Deluxe (17) and just recently started having problems with it. I have Windows 7 but I don't think that should make a difference since it worked fine on Windows 7 before. The problem is on games or lessons (anything where you type). It has letters in black all jumbled up behind the ones I'm supposed to type making it very difficult to type. What can I do to fix this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. Let me know if you have an answer!

This is a common graphics problem encountered when applications are installed in an unsupported operating system. Unfortunately, you could try to apply a few tweaks regarding compatibility, but before doing that, reinstall the graphics driver and then right click the executable file of the application and select Troubleshoot Compatibility. Select Windows XP instead of Vista and re-launch the software. Additionally, you might want to install latest version of DirectX 9.0c.
