Rendering Problem - Crystal Reports XI R2


I'm developing reports using .NET (Crystal.Windows.Forms) and I'm seeing some strange rendering problems on some (not all) computers. The rendering problem is happening in text boxes whether the text field can grow or not. The problems are with inter-character spacing (overlapping and too large/many spaces especially between punctuation) and some of the words are even spelled incorrectly (almost as if a different character set is being used). The report previews incorrectly, prints incorrectly, and exports (PDF) incorrectly on those computers.

I've looked to make sure the computers having the problem have the correct runtime installed and have even uninstalled and reinstalled the runtime. All the computers are running Win XP 32 bit. I've tried some different fonts and I get different results, but none of the results are correct (WYSIWYG).

I'm pretty much out of ideas and things to try and hope there's a simple solution.
