    ok when I log on a search engine or a server, any thing that has links to a download or the results after a search, or anything, all the fonts are put into large and when I click on the links, the link fonts become small. I check the accessibility on the internet options but, still I can see huge letters. My screen area (from properties,settings) size is 1024 by 768. All of the icons in my desktop is in small size and that affects my browser, all the letters on web pages and stuff are suppose to be in small letters but when ever I go to a web page, all the letters are large. In server just like this, when I click on the threads, all of the fonts of are large and it's quite irritating. I had a similar problem like this a long time ago, but the problem was that when I click on a link on a webpage every letter on the webpage becomes twice as large. For some reason the problem went away. And it didn't bother me, then this problem came up can some one help me.
    thnx to any responses.

    You could try running a repair on Internet Explorer.
    Go to Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. Then click on Internet Explorer, and click "Add/Remove". A new window should open up presenting you with the option to "repair Internet Explorer". Click on this option, and hit OK.

    I checked on the MS Knowledge Base, and there doesn't seem to be anything that really meets all the conditions of your problem.
    Does it ever properly display the fonts, or does this always happen?

    Post back with results.


    [EDIT:] Sorry, just found this link. You could always try following the instructions in this link:


    I've also heard about Eudora Pro, causing problems with Fonts in IE. Do you use Eudora for e-mail or no?
