    ok, i need help guys. my brother has messed around with the display settings on my computer big time and its all confuddled and the display looks terrible
    like all the windows programs look like they are from 98, yet like the task bar and all is xp style (as are folders etc...)
    then like IE (which i dont use, i use firefox, but id still like to get this fixed) is all messed up, the icons on webpages are giant (like google search button) and theres no back ground colour on sites!

    is there anyway possible to change it back to the default? i checked google but theres no one posted a way (that works) as ive tried a few wee things.

    please help guys

    You may want to try your text size and change it to medium using IE.

    View > Text Size > Medium

    I'm not sure how to fix all the problems you have with IE, but there is a fix that might work. Save your bookmarks, or export them to a folder of your choice.

    Reinstall IE 6.0 by d/l latest build from net. Restart. The problems may be fixed as theme's will be overwritten.

    Try that and get back to me. As for the desktop probs, leave that for now, we'll work on IE first.

    Resetting to default isn't going to fix your IE problems though. I think your best bet is to get Style XP. From there you may be able to change everything back. It's easy.

    p.s. It looks like he changed your screen resolution...
