When the icons are to big


After my son was attempting to reach a nintendo site, my computer developed Giant Icons and windows- I'd estimate sizes are 5 or more times larger then large icon settings . I've checked all the settings - nothing seems wrong. I can only see about half of your web page- if I had eye problems it might be ok.

For the record, I've just went through several weeks of problems with MSN-8 including dumping all MSN stuff then reinstalling the windows 98 and MSN-7. It seems that MSN-8 is a "worm" for windows 98 and 2000.

Is it possible that all these problems are related ie I didn't get all the MSN-8 garbage off and it came back to bite.

Any suggestions?

Thx Bob Sompayrac
