    right ok, this is a bit strange but since trying to play a unreal tourament demo the desktop icons, font, everything has doubled in size, but the strange thing is that vista states it is in normal size font (the DPI is in the default), so you see my dilema it says its in default but it isnt, what on earth is going on? please help

    a minor detail which might not be important also is that when i get my modem software up usually it tries to connect without me putting my password in, so usualy i stop it trying to connect and put password in, but now it doesnt connect automatically,

    I restored it to just before i installed the demo, but then windows wouldnt start so it went through a self fixing thing then it reset sucsessfully. it went back to normal for literally 2 seconds then went back to the big desktop icons and tool bar etc etc,

    In Vista you can change the icon sizes by holding down "ctrl" and then rotating the scroll wheel of mouse. The Icons are set by right clicking the desktop, choosing "personalize" and then choosing option on left.
