    Greetings and fancy meeting you in "Dog Behavior, thanks for listing there. I am such a novice with a computer, a thread is something you use to sew a button on. However, I am only ignorant, not stupid, so bear with me. My font size changes without provocation, for example the site for dog behavior is so large dog takes up half the maximized screen. Now, it is true that I have a serious visual impairment my computer knows, but darn it it is not with central vision its loss of periphral vision I did a rudimentry search tried a couple of things to no avail. I have windows 98 and no scroll mouse. Please help I have to learn as much as I can because my visual impairment is not correctable and will eventually affect my central vision. I am taking computer classes but only in operation of programs. thanks

    OK, if that doesnt fix it, go to start>>settings>>control panel>>add/remove programs>>Microsoft Internet Explorer>>Add/Remove button>>Repair

    Then restart, and do the things in my earlier post again.
