I have read and read and read.....many Forums looking for this problem.

THIS site provided me the Blessed help I needed to fix MY bleeping computer !!
I got the xp 2008 virus, used Spybot, MAlewarebytes, Stinger, Ad-ware, Ad-watch,
McAfee scan, Registery cleaners etc.

Appears to be OK now.

When I access some Websites, I get a HUGE font, words run down the left side of the page
with 6-8 words per page, it is so huge. ALL this with Text set at smallest.

I had trouble with changing my background picture. But am able to now, with difficulty.

I still have trouble with "themes" .
Although I just realized as it applies to Websites, colors, background, active & inactive
screens. (versus other programs on my PC).

I run Windows XP, home. Verizon DSL with MSN Premium.

Am I still infected or are there settings I can change?
No rhyme or reason for which websites will be HUGE. 10- 15% are this way.
I can open IE Explorer and still have that problem thru that portal. (vs. MSN)

Welcome to BleepingComputer

You may not be infected anymore, but be suffering from a botched attempt at removing and repairing the damage from the infection.

Too many cooks spoil the soup.

MBAM, Superantispyware, ATF cleaner, DrWebCureit and SDFix would be the programs I would trust to remove such an infection

AdAware, reigstry cleaners and McAfee would be the last ones I would use, they might cause more harm than good.

Spybot's teatimer would be an issue during a repair.

I also believe the order of programs used in a repair to be critical

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
