<_< Every time I open a browser from a link it opens in a 1x1 box that I have to manually maximize. I have tried dragging the window box, no dice. It started about a week ago. Any way to fix????

Welcome headhunterjoe <_<

Have you upgraded to IE 6.0? Usually, this was a problem when using 5.0.

Editing the registry can cause very serious problems, if not done correctly. Before you begin create a registry backup.

Next, Close all instances of Internet Explorer
Start the Registry Editor (Start-> Run -> type Regedit)
Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main
Delete the value Window_Placement
Exit the Registry Editor

If you're not comfortable with editing the registry, this alternate method often works.

Open a new window. Grab the corner of this small browser window with your mouse and stretch it to the size you want. If you want windows to open full screen you have to stretch it as far as possible with the corners. DO NOT use the maximize button.

Once you have this window stretched to the size you want.. Click the X to close it.

This new size should be remembered for all new windows.
