Understanding TextRenderingHint

P: n/a
In control panel/Display/Appearance/Effects I have
ClearType selected to smooth screen font edges.
I have an LCD display.
When I apply that, the display on the screen is better in VS and Outlook

However in my app which draws text on a picturebox the text looks bad.

Red text for example looks like the antialias has been applied using blue
and the blue text looks too thick.

I suppose I could use
TextRenderingHint to turn it off but I don't know which of the Enumeration
to use. I'd guess SystemDefault?

But why? Why should I have to? Are the other programs turning it off? I
doubt it.

Can anyone shed some light on this?
