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.

Regards
  Jens
