just me - the link does not go anywhere it just goes to 404 page.

404 ERROR: Page Not Found!

The requested page http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...showtopic=52293 could not be found on this server.

But the fix for this should be go to control panel then display then settings and change the screen resolution to 1024x768 and save it. right now the screen is set to something like 768x1024 which switches the screen to this position.

It appears that the link that just me posted was hosed by the "link compositor" or whatever that automatic link adding button is called (that's why I type all my links by hand!).

Try turning the monitor on it's side and putting a flower pot on top of it - Dad won't even notice! :thumbsup: Just Kidding!!!

Seriously, I'd go with ThorXP's advice.

Viewing just me's link in the status bar of Firefox shows some syntax errors and both / and \ characters - that's why I think the compositor hosed it!

It depends on which video card you have, or which system. In some Dells, for instance, there's a menu button on the keyboard. Try using that along with the arrow keys to get the thing straight. With some video cards, there's an icon in the tray - click on that to open it and see if there's an option to change the monitor. Otherwise, use the ctrl key with the arrow keys and see if that works.
