    Hello

    I have a problem where the fonts on all web pages are too big. It suddenly became like this, I have no idea why. Could some kind individual tell me how to make the fonts the default size, back the way they were.

    Thank you.

    Hi- easy one- I assume... open up Internet explorer- go to top bar and select 'View'. Then go to 'text size' in drop down menu. I believe you want to select 'medium' size. :)

    Thank you! That's fixed it. The only mystery is why it changed, I have a suspicion that it's a side effect of some bl**dy spyware/adware my computers got.

    no problemo- maybe even a visited website has directions to auto-change the size. Well if its suspected spyware- use adaware, spyware blaster and spybot and your anti-spy software. [see my links]

    Thanks again, I really should have more security programs on my computer - I'll install them when I have time.

    Most of the time it is accidental and a result of using a mouse with a wheel.
    Holding CTRL and turning the wheel makes the size larger or smaller (as well as the IE setting).
