I have just repaired a clients XP machine that is finally running fairly well. Had a great deal of malaware, spyware, etc. that I was able to clean. The owner had three virus programs running on the computer at the same time which cancelled out each other.

The only problem remain has to do with the screen resolution and taskbar which I think are inter-related. When ever I open a page in IE7 and then maximize, I am not able to see the full screen. I can't even get to x out the screen until I unmaximize the screen and pull the screen over to get to the x. I've tried working with the monitor control (extremely old monitor) with no success.

I also am finding that the tray at the bottom of the screen is much too large (height) If I drag the top down and reduce the size (height) I can get a slim line but there is not enough to see the icons in the tray. I tried working with the controls on the monitor with no success.

Could I correct both of these by going into System Properties and changing the display settings.

When I first saw the computer the tray was on the left hand side. I was able to move it to the bottom of the screen.

Thanks for any and all help.

I would certainly give that a try.

You also might want to try reinstalling the video driver.
