I know that it is something I have done while I was trying to fix the fonts. I did some to my resalution, or color or something I changed trying to fix one problem, and created another one.

I belive this has to do with the CSS files.
I think internet exporer has been told to use the CSS files of your own instead of the authors.
Firefox has a setting for this and know where it is there. However I haven't worked with IE7 yet so far so I can't help past this point.
I'm pretty sure there's other staff that is more then happy to help you with changing this.
Goodluck!

Olrik

if Johanna's idea doesn't work ...try system restore...go back a week before you started "playing" with your display settings...
to Mr. NiceGuy you need to start your own thread...although your problems are similar...the fix may be totally different for you...after starting your own thread..pm me with the link to it and I will help you..
