    I use Internet Explorer, and in the last hour suddenly most of the font on most websites is much smaller and harder to read than it was before. I don't know what caused this; do you know how to get it back to the default size?

    Hi At_random,Lets see if the repair option for IE will help.Go to Start>Settings>control panel>Add and Remove programs>highlight IE and internet tools>click the remove button,the repair dialog box will open>put a tick in repair IE>click ok.See if that helps.Might also be a good idea to post your startup programs.Go to Start>Run>type in Msinfo32,click ok.Click on the + sign next to software environment>click on startup programs,click edit>select all,click edit,copy,and paste the page back here.

    And if you have a scroll mouse, you can easily change the font size in IE by holding down the Ctrl key and scroll the wheel to increase or decrease the font size.

    Grtz.

    I didn't know about the scroll mouse thing, but that solved it. That's cool! Thanks.
