You have a mouse with a scroller on it, yes? And if you press the CTRL key and scroll while looking at a webpage, the type set gets bigger/smaller, right?

Readjust the font size with your wheel, and see if the problem goes away.

It was a stab in the dark.

right click on the desk top and choose PROPERTIES/APPEARANCE

Under SCHEME, ITEM AND FONT are the values set to the default, or have you customized them?

If you ahve changed anything, let me know what your settings are so I can duplicate it on my computer.

What O/S are you using?

I have 98 SE also. I am going to work on this today until it is resolved.

Right click oin desktop, PROPERTIES/SETTINGS, is the screen area set to 800 X 600?

I saw another thread you are on -- did you get the Hijack This log finished. It looks like that thread is still open. How's that going?

I may have something else for you in a few minutes.

Tks for help Steve. No, I think he means that when he clicks on a link on a webpage, the font size gets big on that one link before the new link opens.

I have done all I can. I think there is an adjustment in your preferences that is trying to default when you click on a link. That means that the web preference loses dominance once the computer starts to "do" what the link is asking it to do. The computer necessarily does it the way it knows how, so the font size changes from the web setting to the computer setting. You see that as an increase in font size. It seems therefore logical to look at your settings and find the variable that is causing this feature to occur.

Others will stop by and offer help too. Sorry I didn't have the exact answer.

Good Luck,

Mr. P
