    Is it on all sites or just on here I get a problem on here sometimes with Windows 7 and IE. I think it is an IE problem because if I use Firefox or Chrome it is fine

    If it's other sites as well, you could try using a different browser and seeing if it works and/or clear all your internet cookies.

    Try holding down your CTRL key and then scroll with your mouse at the same time.

    Do you have Firefox or Chrome

    Try using one of them and see if you get the same problem. If you haven't you can download Firefox here

    Can you take a screenshot or photo and post a pic so that we can see what you mean

    If you go to the address bar and then press alt you will get another row which has file, edit, view etc..............

    Click on view, zoom size - then see what your page is set to.
    Underneath zoom, there is Text Size, this will tell you what size text you have.

    :D Glad I could help, I just fiddled with my IE to see how I could change it.

    So you're all back to normal now :D there's nothing worse that pages not looking right, it drives me nuts when things like that happens
