Hi

Try this:

Right click the Desktop, then select Properties>Settings>Advanced>General.
Make sure that the drop down menu is set to 'Normal (96 DPI)'.

Hi

What programs did you delete? Could one of those had this effect on your
system? Have you tried a System Restore back to a point before the problem
started?

Try setting the sgreen resolution to a higher figure, say 1024 x 768
(it _might_ have been set down to 800 x 600 or even lower'
(Desktop Properties>Settings)

You may have accidently turned on the accessibility options to magnify
the screen. Try googling or maybe this will be of help:
