K Menu, and desktop fonts look weird

I have two problems in this single thread that I can show with one screenshot.

First, the K Menu Icon looks weird as its left edge seems cut. My K Menu's left edge touches the edge of the screen and I do not know how to fix it. I know I can move it a little to the right for it to look better, but whenever I press the top-left corner (my K Menu is on the top-left of my screen), it does not touch the K Menu because K Menu's left edge seems to be cut shorter.

Second, the font color of my desktop fonts look odd. My look and feel is the default Kubuntu Feisty's but for some reason, the font color on my desktop is changed into something not so readable. I tried K control center but there is nothing there that changes the desktop font color. How do I change my desktop font color?

I attached a screenshot. ;)

Those fonts look like the LCD fonts
or fonts that are enhanced for an LCD screen.

What are the fonts you are using.

The left edge of the taskbar does look too close to the edge
of the screen as if the screen aperture is not adjusted correctly.
Perhaps a physical screen adjustment via the monitor.

A workaround might be to put a 2 pixel hide button on the left.
Not very graceful but.......
