I recently had to format and re-install my windows xp after the installation however none of my fonts or icons are the same and the words are very small for me to see.... I am currently running 2 different user accounts on this machine and before the format i was able to change the font size and desktop size on either account to different settings, now for some reason I cant remember how to do it and if i change one then the other is messed up. I also have stalling issues now with firefox (even after doing the tweaks located in speeding up firefox) that I didnt have before format.....
If anyone could help me plz that would be wonderful
xmas season has brain fried

I can't think of anything else, but your recent Windows reinstall went bad.
Try repair: http://www.michaelst...pairinstall.htm
