    Thanks ,Nick ,However
    Items at HKEY_Current_USer\Software\Avalon.Graphics\Display1 are not evidences that ClearType is on!!!

    HKEY_Current_USer\Software\Avalon.Graphics\Display1 \ClearTypeLevel
    HKEY_Current_USer\Software\Avalon.Graphics\Display1 \EnhancedContrastLevel
    HKEY_Current_USer\Software\Avalon.Graphics\Display1 \TextContrastLevel

    1. Install your win7 and logon

    2. Open registry and navigate to HKEY_Current_USer\Software\Avalon.Graphics\Display1
       you'll find no items here
    3. Open ControlPanel and set ClearType on
       refresh registry , you'll find items are established here.
    4. Turn off ClearType and refresh registry
       You'll find items still resides here , no one is erased.

  • MarcusHe,

    Maybe you should download Process monitor to trace what registry key is changed when you change the setting in the control panel.
