Hi, when I first got this computer, the resolution settings were set to 1024 by 768 pixels. I like my icons bigger so I set it back to 800 by 600 pixels. The weird thing is, after a week or so, when I turn on my computer, the settings change back to 1024 by 768 by themselves. What gives?

if it is only icon size you're worried about you can increase the dpi size of the icons through desktop/display settings in the control panel.

Thanks for the advice. It is not a dell computer however. I am just worried that something is reverting the screen resolution by themselves. I haven't installed any new programs that my old computer didn't have. I've scanned with AdAware and Spybot but have found nothing suspiscious. Here're my computer specs:

AMD Athlon 3500+
Foxonn Am2 Motherboard
DDR2 512mb
80G SATA HD
Lg 18x dvd-rw

If you think malware might be the issue, follow these instructions. If you are given the all-clear, then we can look at further steps back in this thread.

Cheers :whistling:
