Ok whilst you're on the Internet Explorer Window, click a white space for me.
And now press CTRL and the + key .

If this does not work, please post again!

Thanks

Jason

i did the ctrl + and it did make everything bigger. but when i go to a game page like cafe on facebook, the game area has about an inch and a half of blank space next to it - so the zoom isnt what i need to do.
you can see in the attachments before and after pics

Ok, can you please open up Internet Explorer which it looks like you're using.
Once this as opened can you please press ALT then V then Z and once the last menu is up click 100%.

And see if this makes a difference for you.

Thanks

Can you please poster larger screenshots of what your screen looks like at the minute!
With those pictures I can barely see what is wrong with your system.

If you do not know how to make a screenshot just ask!

Garrin,
On your keyboard there should be a key that says "PrintScrn" above your "Insert" key.
Press that. Then paste that into a Paint, drawing, save it and attach to your next post!

Hi garrinmarie, would you try something very simple for me, and see if this resolves the problem with your browser.

Start - programs - accessories - system tools - system restore.
Click next.
Select a highlighted date from the calander that is just before the cat rolled across the keyboard.
Select the system check point from the right and click next or ok or whatever it says at the bottom.

Now leave your computer completely alone until it reboots and gives a message that it was successful. Click ok to exit the system restore program.

Now try your browser and see if that set whatever settings that your cat messed up back to the way they were. Then let us know.

Reguards

I've had a second look at the screenshots... AND well everything looks normal!

On my computer facebook has the EXACT same lengths of white space on it...

Your computer setting seem perfect.
