Linux Mint 17.1 blurry windows

I just started using Linux Mint 17.1 and so far I like it. I just have one small problem with it, all the print goes out of focus unless the mouse is hovering over it. This just started happening a couple days ago. I know it's my fault, as my 2 year old got hold of the keyboard for 10 minutes before I realized what it was she was playing with. It seems that all the icons, windows boarders, pictures, and such are not effected, just the text. Anyway to correct this blurriness?

Okay I found the problem is my nvidia driver from this link
What I have to do is delete .nvidia-settings-rc, but I cannot find it. Where is this file?
