:tazz: The other day I was messing around with my desktop settings,(Something I realize now I shouldn't have done), changing a few things to give my appearance a new look. You know, change the colors and stuff. Anyway, I thought everything looked good and was happy. Well this morning I restarted my computer after installing new updates from microsoft, (the first time restarting since before I changed everything), and when it comes back up my taskbarand start menu things are messed up. My icons on the right next to the clock are larger and the icon picture itself is distorted and fuzzy. Then in the start menu the icons are larger than normal. I tried reading and researching this problem to fix it on my own and all I found was to change the Active Title Bar in Advanced under the appearance tab in Display. I was told to change it to Tahoma font and size 6. this fixed the icon problem but now my title bars are smaller and the font is unbeliavbly small. I then tried system restore hoping it would fix something but it did nothing. Does anyone know how I can set everything back to the way it waas without sacrificing my title bars so I can see the icons? ;)

Nevermind. Thanks for all the help from anyone who might have thought about helping. :-( I found a way to fix it myself. everything is back to normal and I know not to touch anything again.
