8.1 Grayed Out Text?

Im on a fresh install of windows 8, upgraded to 8.1, and some of the text, like google chrome address bar, and random things in install windows and the file explorer are grayed out. Does anybody know why this could be?

Yes, I have a totally legitimate copy of Windows. And I only got caught for tax evasion that one time. Jeez.

I can still interact with it fine, its just a pain to try to read. Ill try replacing the files, thank you.
