Hi, have you try to print the plot ? and does the PostScript output the same problem ? This comes usual from the font metrics, that may be a bit different for the Windows fonts (Times New Roman instead of Times, ..) and this small differences cause that Mathematica "think" the character is 9 pixel wide while the character in the Windows font is only 8.8 pixel wide. If I remember right, there is some where a performance switch for Windows to use antialiasing for the true type fonts, and this should reduce the effect.
