    I'm running IE6.0 on XP. Lately when I open the browser, all the text on the page is centered. Everywhere...regardless of the website. Only text I type in is aligned left.

    It's really annoying.

    I've run Pandasoft virus routing and a bunch of other corrective routines, and nothing seems to work. As far as I can tell my machine is clean. Nothing I do to the browser settings seems to work, and all my searching suggests nobody else is having this problem.

    Any ideas? Check out the screen shot of MSN.

    You have tried this on other pages and get the same thing?

    I would suspect somebody has put in a style sheet that can cause these symptoms

    open IE/tools/options/general/accessabilty/untick user style sheet

    if not ticked than please go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    My first few Hijack This scans didn't turn up anything unusual. The last one did, so I wiped it and everything seems to be working fine. I'll keep you posted and let you know, if it happens again, which issues were causing the problem.
