It appears that your DPI settings are set to 96% which is likely what's causing the issue.  Please try changing your DPI settings to 100% to see if that corrects the problem.  You can find instructions on how to do so on this page.

Additionally, I also noticed that you have User Account Control disabled, and while that likely has nothing to do with this issue, it isn't very secure to have it turned off, not to mention the fact that Malwarebytes, along with virtually all modern software has been designed to be fully UAC compatible and compliant meaning having it disabled can cause issues with some programs.  I would highly recommend turning UAC back on, and if you wish to do so you may find instructions on how to do that on this page.

Please let me know how it goes and if the display issue still persists.

I HAVE the same exact issue. My DPI "is" 100% and UAC is set and I have the same poor almost unreadable display in Windows 7 Pro with a high end graphics card... this started several updates back and I've lived with it but it is hard to see and I find others are having the issue. Thanks.

Can you provide the requested logs from post #2 above so we can take a look?
