Microsoft appears to have released a newer version of another Update which was originally released a few days ago, but which can cause font rendering issues on Windows Vista.

Go to Windows Control Panel>Programs and Features>View installed updates, then enter KB3013455 in the Search box at the top right and uninstall the result. Note that uninstalling this update leaves your system exposed to a security vulnerability which can be readily exploited.
