I and a tech at a local company and I see this problem a lot. The IE display settings are out of whack and the text is far too large making it impossible to read many pages. I have tried the obvious simple fixes of going to view>text size> and setting it to medium and going into the windows display settings and setting them to default. I have set every setting to default and still the text is monstrously huge! I even looked in the registry. Still no dice. This problem is so common yet specific that even goggling it does not come up with the desired results. I am level 1 support and I would like to be able to remide this issue instead of passing on a ticket and causing the users more time lost. At this point is it best just to pass it on and have the other support people reload IE? :tazz:

I am kind of hopping that there is a registry fix out there that will fix this issue. Also the background graphics on some of the company pages will not showing on affected machines but on other machines they show up like they should. :tazz:

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go.

I doubt that it is a registry problem. Let's try something simple first:

In the menu of Internet Explorer, click on Tools, Internet Options, go to the Advanced tab, and click on Restore Defaults.

If this doesn't work, go ahead and download the latest IE and reload it. If neither of these work, it could be an infection that has spread. Let me know how it goes.

Open Internet Options, look at the bootom, click on Accessability, I'll bet ten dollars to a doughnut that some of the people have checked "ignore font sizes". Also, your screens may be set at 640x480.
