I have a Gateway laptop running Windows XP SP3. When I open the services window, either through Administrative Tools or by running services.msc, the service description text on the left side of the window is very small. I don't know how to fix this, but it is too small to read comfortably or click on "Start/Stop" for each service.

I have tried decreasing/increasing the DPI size and setting it back to normal. I also tried reinstalling SP3, along with the Microsoft Management Console, but to no avail. I have not seen this issue with small text anywhere else on my computer.

Thanks for any help you can give!

Nothing happens... I also cannot zoom in any way with my mouse's scroll wheel, or Cntrl + Scroll Wheel. I have also noticed that the problem occurs in all of the help windows of the Microsoft Management Console, and in the Group Policy Editor. It seems to be an issue with MMC.
