ACT V16 installed in Windows 8.1 issues

We have ACTV16 running on Windows 7, we have 9 licenses with 7 remotes. Recently my VP and President purchased new computers with Windows 8.1. Act installed like everyone elses, no errors nothing but only them two have several issues including the custom layout is close together and hard to read and overlaps on one side. When they click on a record and try to insert a note, it will not let them type. One of these computers have a remote database and the other one is linked via the main server. 

The computer with the remote database, i un-installed everything off his computer and started fresh but still the same issue.

I recently updated both the server and all our remotes, so we have the lastest update and hot fix.

Any ideas or fixes in the near future?

I found out what the problem is: Hopefully ACT will have a fix for it soon. You can only have the DPI setting to Medium text 125% anything larger ACT V16 is unusable!
