My screen width keeps randomly changing slightly. it does not happen all the time, but occasionally without warning. Then it will change back to normal after a while. I have done nothing to cause this to my knowledge. The reduction in width is about 10 mm. each side when it happens.
Please, before any suggestions of malware are made, my system is clean. I scan it regularly with a selection of AVG 2014 (a complete system scan carried out on 31 July), SuprAntiSpyware and Emsisoft Emergency Kit. All come up clean. I also use Sandboxie exclusively.
My screen resolution is set at 1024 x 768 pixels and has been for a very long time.
Any clues ? Settings, files etc.that may have developed some problem. I have no intention of ending up with a pile of disconnected parts to solve this problem or go through any extensive data download analysis. If it is not a simple adjustment hiccup, I will have to live with it for a while.
If for instance overheating may be causing this problem, then it has been very hot here for about 3 weeks, so in that case I will see what happens when the weather cools down. If it is dirt accumulation in my computer cabinet, then so long as I know, I will at my convenience have the computer insides cleaned out and the fan inspected by my local service engineers.
I use the latest updated Chrome version browser.
Edit typing error- 10 cm corrected to 10 mm - first paragraph.
