Hi there I have been teaching myself to use this program but now I have hit a problem. I recently updated my NVidia video card drivers and all of a sudden Capture NX2 is not behaving properly. See attached screen shot to see what I mean. I do not wish to downgrade the video driver for the sake of one program. I have ensured that the Nikon recommended 96dpi is applied. Has anyone got any ideas how to fix this?
You might try uninstalling, then reinstalling NX2. I had the same problen a while back. A 3rd party software was trying to reconfigure the appearance of the NX2 window so I uninstalled the 3rd party software. Hope this helps.

Before going the uninstall route please try this: change in your display preferences the lay-out of Windows to the 'classic Windows' lay-out for windows and buttons while you have NX2 open. After your windows have changed please reverse again to the normal Windows lay-out. This forces Capture NX2 to 're-invent' how it should look.
I had a similar issue when I switched to a new broadscreen monitor - and got weird UI behavior too (thoughnot as nasty as your screenshot) - which was corrected in this way. Hope this lucky shot helps you too.
Thanks very much for this. It has resulted in my finding a way out of my dilemma. This is a bit of a strange one possibly part of the same bug that results in Nikon advising 96dpi as a screen setting.
I had tried un and re-installing a couple of times with no better result. However when I turned off the theme I was using and reverted to vanilla windows I noticed that I could see my wallpaper at the edge of the NX2 window. Once I assured that all edges of the NX2 window were visible the corrupted characters cleared. I tried again with my normal theme in place and the same thing happened; Maximised NX2 window = corrupted view. Reduced window avoiding screen edges = program performing as it should. The above can only be regarded as a workaround and not a cure but at least I can carry on now .
