    Guys,

    I've recently reinstalled XP, which went fine. However, my complete Windows screen (all applications opened, and including task bar) is now displayed in the size of 2 postcards, cannot be maxmised, centred, all against a black background.

    What' that about?! I want my full screen Windows back. Arghh!
    Any ideas would be very much appreciated.

    Ah...must have been something you said.
    It was simply a matter of fixing resolution and pixel figures under Display.
    Thanks for your prompt reply.
