I experienced this once after visiting an innocent (on the surface anyhow...) web page, my browser (especially ie) would open at a size approximately equivelent to my thumbnail. I ran Ad-Aware and Spybot, and that fixed the problem. Give that a try. You can find a link to those right here, at the top of the forum where it says
"Do you suspect a malware (Spyware, Virus, Trojan) infection? Please start here. "

Adjust the window to the size you prefer, and hold down the control key while you click out on the X. Fingers crossed, XP should remember your preference.

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Does this happen with the main IE window when you open it or just links you click on??

If it is just links, try the following..

Start IE..

Click on a link..

Now, use the File>Exit option on the original Window.. Do NOT just "x" out..

Using your mouse cursor, drag all four edges of the smaller window as far to the sides and top and bottom as you can..

Now, using the File>Exit option again, close that Windows.. DO NOT just "x" out of this window either..

Now try starting IE and clicking on a link!!
