(if you do this, count how many tabs you need to get to the button to cancel so you can move the cursor with the tab key even if you cant see it). Maybe Office somehow changed your dpi. from Windows Help the following might be the answer:

If you set the DPI higher than 96, and you are running Windows Aero (the premium visual experience of Windows Vista), the text and other items on the screen might appear blurry in some programs that are not designed for high–DPI display in this version of Windows. You can avoid this issue by using Windows XP style DPI scaling for these programs. To make text and on-screen items clearer in programs that aren't designed for high DPI
