Hi,

Don't remember how or when this happened, but the IE on this PC doesn't display text/font properly or to scale. Text, titles, menu items are out of place; font is too large or too small; things are just generally out of normal scale.

Have a look at this snapshot I took of Yahoo Mail on IE8. See how fonts, titles are out of whack. This is what I mean. What can I do to restore IE8 to display properly?

I'd switch to Firefox alltogether (which displays correctly btw on this same PC), but the person using this computer doesn't want to leave Internet Explorer.

Please help. Thanks :)

You can try and reset IE to default settings.
