    Since I've had my replacement computer up and running I'm having trouble getting print sizes large enough. The current problem is Google - Although the search page is a decent size (and can be further enlarged with my zoom mouse), the search results are microscopic. Nothing I can adjust on the computer settings seems to influence how big the search results page is, and the zoom mouse won't work on that page. The only solution I've heard of (which didn't work for me) is to hold Crtl down while either pushing the + key or rolling the mouse wheel. Any other ideas? I have Windows XP/IE6.

    IE6 is a dinosaur. It's isn't supported by Microsoft anymore and is considered quite unsafe. Many websites have evolved beyond it and they will not support IE6 anymore. I suggest upgrading to IE8 and you'll see a lot of improvement, feature and security wise.

    I'm not convinced that this is a Google support issue or related to the fact that I use IE6. When I bought the replacement computer, I installed the hard drive from the original and everything was fine. Unfortunately when I did a Windows update, the drive then went into Sytem Recovery mode and I can't seem to exit it - That's why I'm back to the new drive and having to solve this print size issue
