One day my IE opened and all the fonts were huge, many site graphics wouldn't load, and even background colors wouldn't come through. I've checked the text size and it is at normal, I've checked the accessiblity font checkboxes and they are not checked, and I've emptied (and also expanded) the temporary internet files folder. Still the problem persists and it's driving me batty. I'm living in an Internet world of large text and only some graphics, which often leads to a site's buttons' text overlapping on each other, making it nearly impossible to click on any of them. Any suggestions?

Have you done any viruses / spyware scans lately (after the problem happened)?

This sounds like a problem I had. See http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...ndpost&p=232416 for a solution that worked for me.

Many thanks Joe. It's finally fixed!

You know, when this first happened I assumed it was a check box SOMEWHERE that Windows suddenly just decided to check (while any helpdesk person will snicker at this; I am absolutely, positively sure I never even when into the accessiblity options, much less clicked that check box). I searched, and searched, and then, finding nothing, just assumed that it must be something more technical. NOPE. It was just that one, stupid, freakin' button that (I swear) I never touched. [The button in question: accessiblity options/display/'Use High Contrast'.]

Regardless, even if I had, somehow, caused this, I'm just happy it's resolved. Many thanks.
