    Everything in my system tray and the max/minimize, close, retore buttons at the top right of open windows are SUPER small--i can barely even click the window buttons they are so small. Its not the resolution settings as all other desktop and folder icons are normal. Any ideas?

    my res is at 1152x864. Ive always kept it there so the screen is a decent size. i will try the registry restore as a last resort, ive been out of town and somehow my roomate accomplished this feat over the last 2 weeks. Arg!!!

    If this has just started happening you might try a registry restore. If you are running WIn98 boot to the command prompt and type
    scanreg /restore press enter
    Choose a registry from a date prior to the problem. All other changes, installs and uninstalls made since this date will be lost.

    I finally got the icon size issues resolved, but ive noticed that programs like IE, my CD burning software, and a few others have been either freezing (not responding) or simply not opening lately. If i reboot these probs go away for as little as an hour or (as is presently) 2 days and counting? Could this be a virus? Any good virus software anybody can reccomend? Thx in advance
