    As you well know by now, you don't need to hack the registry to make this work. Right-click the desktop -> Properties. In the Display Properties box, click the Appearence tab. On the Appearence tab, click the Effects button. Make sure the Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts checkbox is checked and then use the drop down menu to change from Standard to Clear Type.
