I just bought a flat panel monitor, and the screen is kind of soft because it reduces glare. I am guessing it's alright to spray Windex on it but thought I'd ask first.

DO NOT EVEN, spray WINDEX on it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The stuff in Windex will ruin an LCD screen, and especially the one you have.
Alcohol will harden and yellow an LCD screen
It damages a carbonate composite screen, I can't even imagine what it will do to yours, and 90% of cleaners made to clean LCD screens have alcohol in them!

Check the instructions that came with your anti-glare LCD screen, or the laptop manual.

No don't use Windex. Use a dry cloth or that screen cleaning cloth that you can get from Best Buy. Also, make sure not to press too hard on the screen as you might burn out some of the pixels on the screen. Oh and don't use paper towels or any rough types of paper as they could as cause damage to the screen.

Generally, you're supposed to clean with a fifty percent isopropyl alcohol/ fifty percent water mixture. Windex and other window cleaners will strip the anti-glare coating, so it's good you asked.
