Here's a weird one.

Old PC, P200MMX, with 32 MB RAM, but only running Win 95 OSR2.

The font size for Windows is set to large (125%) of default font size, and no matter how many times you change the setting back to standard size, no matter how you do it, by either setting to normal or specifying a custom size as normal, when you reboot Windows always comes back up with the large fonts.

Is there a registry hack that anyone knows of that will cure this?

Forgive my ignorance, but how would reinstalling the video driver help a font issue?

The only reason I ask is that the VGA seems fine at the moment. I can run at 1024 x 768 in 256 colours or at 800 x 600 in 16-bit no problem at default refresh rates, which considering that this only has a 2MB PCI (integrated) VGA card seems to be pretty good.

Right click your desktop and select properties. In display properties select the effects tab and de-select the large icons checkbox...apply and see what happens.

I checked this and large icons wasn't selected, just the standard default size.

The problem is now history though as in frustration I have fomatted and reinstalled with 98Se so the fonts are back to normal....sigh.

Thanks anyway guys.:)
