Hi guys,

For the past week now I've had no desktop icons or windows bar at the bottom of my screen. This has limited me to how i can use my pc as I'm not very good with shortcuts etc to launch the web tab. i also cannot get the start menu up by pressing the windows button on my keyboard

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could have caused this and how i resolve the situation?

Many thanks n advance

Once upon a time, everything fit on the screen, now it does not. I have searched everywhere I can think of, but no joy. I have just spent the day with Microsoft removing Antivirus XP 2000, but this problem occured prior to this infection. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

A:IE 6 - Page is too large for screen

Is your IE window actually maximized?

Look in the upper-right corner, the middle button icon should be the double-window. If you see it as a single-window icon, it's not maximized.

I have a client that had another service company as their virtual IT for a couple years. They ended up switching to me after some problems and now I'm stuck with the fun task of coming in behind someone else and trying to keep their network performing normally. Of course they had no passwords for anything except the server admin so I have had to reset a few pieces of hardware and set them back up. It's been a little bumpy but we are mostly back in action.

The problem:

They have windows 2003 SBS running exchange. The way it was originally set up, three users log into the same account on three different machines and share everything from outlook to the synced documents folders. I will be changing this soon to have everyone on their own user name but the owners have been putting this change off as to not disrupt their comfort zone.

In the mean time, I get calls from them every now and then that the network is unacceptably slow. Of course when I get there to check, I find no unusual response times except for outlook.

The inbox had never been archived and has grown to well over 8000 emails many with large attachments. I am looking for the best solution to decrease the size of the inbox while still having easy access to archived emails for the users who all share the same email. Since I've never serviced a company who has been so dependent on huge emails, I've never researched the best way to do this. Other clients I have just use pop3 in their outlook and ... Read more

I'm sure the answer to this is somewhere on the forum. But after searching unsuccessfully, and being tired, I'll ask it again. This time I'll try to remember to record the answer somewhere.

All of a sudden, without any conscious help from me, some of my desktop icons are off screen. And when I open a page online, I have to scroll sideways to see all of what's there, although that is not the case just now with the HOTN page I now have on my screen. This is true both when the screen maximized and when it is not.

How can I correct this and what casuses it to happen?

I downloaded an ebook from '' when I tried to open the file - the screen just went (light) Blue!

Then the computer shut down and re booted - back to the same blue screen.

I shut it down for a few hours, then switched it on - it started to boot normally, I signed in, it continued to boot, just when the desktop page should have appeared - the blue page appeared, the mouse pointer was there - which worked from the mouse ok.

The computer is a fairly modern Packard Bell running Vista Ultimate.

Can anyone help - thanks

A bit of a background (I'm not sure if this helps):
I upgraded to Windows 10 last year. Found some annoying bugs with the apps but, overall, the OS worked fine I encountered no problems. I decided to go back to Windows 8.1 since the buggy apps annoyed me.
Just yesterday, I decided to go back and re-upgrade to Windows 10. First thing that happened is that explorer.exe kept refreshing causing this flickering taskbar.

I decided to use the other account on the same laptop. It worked. So maybe, only the other account was corrupted? I am not sure. So I used this account to search the solutions.

I searched for the whole day yesterday and did all the solutions from others. I removed my antiviruses, anything Apple, IDT Audio, and did my scans, and tampered with services. I did everything on this site said:

what Srinidhi Arekal said. I tried it all except the Norton parts. I didn't have any Norton.

Right now, I checked event viewer. I saw this. searched for it but can't find any solutions to it. Any ideas?

It gets hot in the summer. (90 degree on average, I'm not sure how hot it is inside the case. I open the case once after I used it for a few hour, and some metal part of my pc were really really hot.) Can I use my desktop pc with the case open?
I have a dell, and my case doesn't open all the way. It looks kinda like this:

I also have a much bigger fan like this blowing on the side of the pc with case open.

What's the pros and cons on operating pc with case open? How should I set up my pc and fans so it would effecttlly reduce heat?
Right now, my pc (with case open) is sitting by the wall, and my fan is basically blowing toward the wall on the side of the pc. The fan is a bit higher than the pc, since the pc is lie down on the floor instead of standing up.

I hate to start a new thread and account just for this, but you all have helped me with a lot of my computer problems of late and this one is really bugging me.

I read all I could find on this or other forums on the subject and tried everything but it wont seem to work.

I first noticed I was having issues when my computer refused to change backgrounds in the slideshow I had selected. I was using one of the standard sets of pictures as the background slideshow and it was running flawlessly until Yesterday afternoon when it stuck on a specific picture. At that point I tried changing the desktop to another stock background on the computer and it refused to change from the previous image. I did the same with one of my images thinking maybe there was an issue with the computers images and had no changed results. I then tossed it into high contrast mode and whatnot with zero change. I have flipped between all of the different backgrounds and Theme offered with no results. I Booted (Both shut down + rebooting, and simply restarting) the computer a couple of times and also entered in safe mode. At this point I began looking up solutions. I have tried what was offered on This thread with no success. I also followed the another thread that told me to end explorer.exe and restart it and did so with no success. All of my drivers are up to date, and I tried a couple of other solutions form a couple of other sites all to no avail.

My Taskbar un-hides without me moving the mouse - or even touching the computer. Then, it usually quickly hides again. The icons on the far right of the Taskbar sometimes take over 20 seconds to appear - and that's after the computer has been running for awhile. Then, my Desktop will suddenly disappear momentarily - then come back. I ran System File Checker and it found problems. Before I upgraded from Windows 7, sfc was fine - no problems. I thought if I did a repair install of Windows 10, it might correct these problems - but I can't figure out how to do it. I made a couple of copies of the Windows 10 ISO - but that's only for a clean install. I've Googled for a solution with no luck. Can you advise me what else I can do? Thanks...........

I have spent weeks researching this for an effective solution and nothing out there is working. What makes it even more maddening is everything seemed to be fine until an auto download of MS Updates went through and then this icon disappearing act started.
I have already restored my computer once and that appeared to fix the problem for a while but then it reared its ugly head again and now no matter what version I restore it to, the icons still disappear.
Here's the thing though! I can almost tell, by watching the lower right corner of the start bar when the start bar symbols pop up, about when the desktop icons will go away. SO ISN'T THERE SOME WAY TO GENERATE A LOG (EventViewer maybe?) THAT I COULD POST OR SEND TO SOMEONE SMARTER THAN ME, THAT MIGHT NARROW DOWN WICH APP OR STARTUP ITEM IS DOING THIS?
I have looked at the Event Viewer but I'm not of a mind to understand what I am seeing or looking for. But I have to think if I know roughly which startup symbol showed up just before the icons went away, we could ascertain what's causing it.
Otherwise has anyone found the "REAL" working solution yet?

By Start Page, do you mean your Windows Desktop where all the icons are? If so, right click anywhere in a blank space and select properties, then the Settings tab. You can adjust the screen resolution size.

But, If you just reinstalled Windows, I would update all your drivers first. Go the the manufacturer's website and download the most recent chipset drivers and install, then download the others.

If that is the issue can anyone please suggest me some possible solutions to this and why does the white spaces not affect the loading time of other browsers?

This however has not solved the problem as i see ctfmona in my msconfig boot thing and ctfmonb keeps replacing my desktop. In addition to this my screen saver has been replaced with one that has bugs crawling across my screen and after rebooting about 3 times, I had to remove nod32 from my system else it would just freeze at the desktop screen.

I sat on my laptop for about 20 minutes (story for another time...).

Now there are dark spots on the screen. Not dead pixels, but darker circular areas the size ranging from a few millimeters wide to a couple of centimeters in diameter.

Apparently, the places that were subjected to the greatest pressure are the darkest. There are some small components inside the LCD that I'm guessing were the focus of the weight... Where these components are, the spots appear.

It is barely noticeable except on solid color backgrounds, but still annoys me.

Just wondering if there's any fix aside from replacing the LCD screen all together? I would at least like to understand why spots subjected to such pressure would turn dark. I'm just a curious person I guess.

A:Laptop LCD screen has dark spots. Any solutions?

Just press your finger anywhere on the screen and it will turn darker around that spot.
You obviously warped the outside lid of your laptop. See if you can take the lid and the LCD apart and straighten the lid to relief the LCD-pressure from behind (literally...)

Hello, and thank you in advance for taking the time to address my issue.

I have a Dell laptop here with Windows Vista Home Premium, with the latest updates installed. According to the owner of the laptop, it began exhibiting virus-like symptoms about a week ago. After the removal of a few rogue antivirus programs, I attempted to test out the functionality of the computer by downloading Firefox. I went to, typed "Firefox" in the search bar, and after clicking search, I received a completely blank page - no text on the page at all. The page seemed to be very long and scrollable, as well (see attached photo for reference). I am assuming this is a DNS hijack of some sort. When I replace "" in the address bar with google's ip address, the search results return without a hassle.

Thank you so much,

Hi, please help. I have a one year old Lenovo desktop PC which is run on windows 8. I'm using a Insignia 39 inch tv/monitor and the desktop display is off the screen. Tried changing the resolution and that doesn't help. My bottom taskbar is about 1/2 inch off the screen and the sides are of about an inch. I know I had this same problem when I first bought this monitor and some tech at Lenovo helped me resize it. The Lenovo is an Ideacenter K4 series. Also, this problem is not when I open new pages or programs, only on my desktop screen with my icons.

Hi all. I have recently been having a problem with the fonts on my desktop becoming too large and in boldface type. I haven't changed any setting, so I checked for virus and spyware. All tests came out clean. I used my AVG Pro, trend micro's online house call, ewido's online scanner, Ad-Aware, the free windows online scanner from microsoft, and windows defender. All clean. This happens at random times, and I can't pin it down. A reboot fixes it, but that is annoying. I have posted pictures of this at the following url: If anyone can offer any advice or fixes I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Considering buying a HP pavillion HPE h8-1170uk.

This PC comes with only one massive 2TB hard drive
1. would it be wise to partition this drive and what would you recomend
2. would it be better to clone this drive to a smaller one if so would this be complicated.
3. or would it be better to leave the drive as it is.

Regards Roy

A:HP desktop large drive

It will likely come with at least 3 partitions:

System Reserved (very small, about 200 MB)
Recovery (maybe 10 or 15 GB)
C: for Windows

And maybe even a fourth partition, such as for tools of some type.

That's OK, as long as you never have to add another partition. If so, you would have to use an extended partition--which is doable.

There are advantage and disadvantages to single or multiple partitions. It's mostly personal preference. There's nothing necessarily wrong with 1 huge partition, subdivided only by folders. If you chop the drive up into 5 or 6 partitions, you may end up running out of space on a partition sooner than you expected---which is a pain.

You could do this:

Make DVD recovery disks when you get the PC. These discs serve the same purpose as the recovery partition. If you have the DVDs, you could delete the recovery partition and still be able to restore to factory condition.

You can delete any "tools" partition to the extent you don't need the tools. You can likely find equivalent or better tools on your own.

You could even move the stuff on System Reserved to C and then delete System Reserved.

You probably won't get a Windows install disc, but you could download a legal Windows ISO file, burn it to a disc, reinstall Windows from scratch, and set up your partitions any way you choose in the process. The HP will probably have all kinds of crap on it that you won't want and you can avoid all of that with a clean install after burning recove... Read more

Hey guys, any help on this is greatly appreciated, Thanks

I try to keep my computer on as much as i can to avoid the long start up procedures and as i am on it 10/24hrs of the day i have no need to shut it down.

I recently was required to restart my computer to complete an installation process. When I turned my computer on I noticed that the desktop (Start menu, Task bar, Icons) were abnormally large. I figured that the screen resolution had changed(from the install), but it is still running at the maximum for my laptop (1360 x 768).

The start bar inst too noticeable but it has changed (see (1 - My Task Bar) and (2 - Generic - Old Bar))

I would like to have it back to the way it was and any help/ suggestions from you guys/girls would be very much appreciated

Just a quick question about the desktop button on Win7, for some reason its size increase this week, it's about twice as large now. I know it's a bit silly but it does bother me... and I'd like it back the way it was. I didn't install anything special, I don't use any desktop customizer and I can't find any options to modify that so I'm not sure exactly how it happened, I just noticed one day it was larger.

Do anyone know how to fix that?

Thanks in advance,


Stopping the Tablet PC Input service fixed the issue. Thanks redsoxm16

Try changing your resolution to something different and then back to normal again

I've been struggling to extend the range of my wifi to reach outside my house, whilst I'm refurbing it.

I believed the manufacturers range claims, so I've been through two routers, two adapters (on top of the Wifi built into my laptop), extending cables repeating cables, all with no steady results.

I've bitten the bullet, and bought a big antenna and an adapter with an arial input, seems over kill to reach 40 yards, but hey as long as it works....

The adapter is a MWGUHA w-lan usb device, by minitar, which is identifed by the laptop as an AR5007UG , I've web browsed and understand this is a common shipset on various makes.

Installing the supplied drivers took several atempts with blue screen crashes on the way.
Letting windows find and install a driver its self, when in range on the in built wifi, put a driver on, but the device didnt work.
I noted the driver was not the same release version as the one supplied, opening the properties window with in device manager and clicking diable, change driver etc so I could change the driver caused blue screen.

I've tried the device on another machine running XP and everythings fine so it doenst seem to be an issue with the hardware its self.

I don't understand why it is when I create an internet shortcut on a Windows 7 desktop, most of the icons are "miniature", where as some of them are full size on the desktop. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to which shortcut will be small and which will be full size.

Please see the attached screenshot. The site "Brass Goggles" is full size and "seven forums" is miniature.

On XP, these same sites were all full size. I have no idea what is causing this erratic behavior. Any ideas?

Hi Folks,I have a popup on my desktop now after browsing in IE. This popup takes up approximately 1/4 of the screen on the right side, advertising dating, insurance, gambling, XXX and pharmacy drugs. When it first appeared, I checked the add/remove prgrams and found a program added (i didnt write the name down, just removed it). After a reboot, the popup is still on the desktop but there isnt a program to remove anymore. I have run Spybot, MS AntiSpyware, and McAfee VirusScan in both normal mode and safe mode, and Spybot found something in safe mode which i had removed but that did not fix it.

Please help! My entire desktop display is now too large. Everything from the icons, the desktop picture to webpages.. the font & pics are huge. This happened yesterday when my 10 month old baby leaned forward and hit the keyboard with his hands. He only hit the keyboard a few times and the entire screen and display went huge. There must be some kind of windows keyboard shortcut, but I cannot find it anywhere. I am using a laptop with Windows 98. Thanks for any suggestions!

A:Entire desktop display too large

Odds are you have a video control hotkey the child hit to reset your desktop.

Right mouse click on a blank area of your desktop and choose properties. This will bring up the video display console. Choose settings. Odds are you are in 640x480 mode now and laptops tend to be in 1024x768 mode [which makes for smaller icons/more desktop space]. Since you are running Windows 98 try changing the setting to 800x600 to see if this was your original setting before going to the 1024 mode.

Friend of mine has a netbook with a 16:9 screen. With one particular app the bottom half of the window is off the bottom of the screen. There are no scroll-bars and the window has a minimum size when resizing. Resolution already set to highest.

Current solution is to count the number of tab-presses to know that the OK button is selected.

Is ther another solution?

A:16:9 screen - window too large

Have you tried adjusting the zoom? Look in the bottom right corner of the screen and you will see a percentage. Click on it and try adjusting that and see what happens.

Hey everyone, this is my first post on this site, hopefully not my last :)

Well my problem started tonight, I turn on my desktop, running core 2 duo and Vista, an I get to the vista login screen and my monitor goes on standby, Viewsonic 22" widescreen, I turn it off and turn it back on, everything is fine. This is just minor problem and didn't really bother me. Once logged in, I notice my icons, fonts, toolbars and start menu are all too large. I go to display settings and check resolution etc.. It is all fine!

I've gone through device manager and checked the drivers and monitor and everything seems too be fine. I have also scanned for spyware/viruses and its all clean. Kinda in a dilemma here and any help will be great!

What resolution are you running, you can adjust the resolution by right clicking on the desktop then click on personalize go to display settings adjust to the highest setting available

I keep getting a problem which appears to happen randomly, every so often the computer will peform a physical memory dump and hold the warning message 'Page Fault in Non Page Area.' As i said, it appears random and i thought it may be something to do with memory - i have 2 gigs of ram as 2 sticks. I took each out and put them in each ram port and still came up with the same message.

I got a problem signature of:-

I really have no idea of what is causing the porblem and would like any advice if possible on fixing it preferrably without buying anymore hardware! But i understand to fix it i may well need to be.

My PC Specs are as follows:-

2.40 quad processor
2 gb ram
256 mb graphics card
Windows Vista 64 bit...

Hope for any solutions possible.

Thanks for your time.


A:Blue Screen - Page Fault in non Page Area

you could do a few different things, download memtest and test your RAM for faults:

Also go to start, right-click my computer click properties, click the advanced tab, click settings under perfromance, click advanced tab, click change, make sure it is set to system managed size. (EDIT: sorry this is the XP way, not on my vista machine at the moment, try something like that, if it you cant find it ill find the vista way for you)

If it still messes up, post back with your event viewer logs for any errors reported arround that time.

Whether emailing photos, or reading from from a CD I made, to another computer the file is to large to be viewed w/out scrolling up/down left / right. This problem does not occur on my computer. Photos are JPEG, computers are PCs.

Increasing the pixel count does not correct the issue.

Any suggestions / corrections??

Hi ,every time i click on a desktop ikon it opens in half screen,how do i get the window to appear full size.My internet explorer opens large but the rest wont.I have tried click and drag to maxamise but it just reverts back to a smaller box again.

A:[SOLVED] How to open w7 in large screen

Hi alank950,

All these settings are automatically stored by Windows to remember its previous size. What you should do is:

1. Open the application you wish to have maximized.
2. Maximize the window, or choose the size you want.
3. Close the application correctly (File > Exit).

If the auto-maximize button doesn't do it, try manually setting the size and then closing it properly.

I have the young fellow from next door's small 10" laptop an e-Machine eM350 with an Intel Atom N450 @ 1.66Ghz and 1GB RAM running a 32bit Basic 7 OS.

Have tried to get the resolution down to a level where everything fits on the screen for example the Google search page is so large the search window sits on top of the taskbar just about. The res is 1024x600 and I have tried to reset it but the only option is 800x600 and changing it is pointless as it defaults back to the 1024.

As it stands it is extremely exasperating to use as the opened Google page is frankly unusable as the bars at the top are huge taking up neraly a quarter of the screen and the taskbar which I have got as small as I can is still way too big. Thhe other thing that has got me beat is if I open internet options to set Google as the home page and the next tab I cannot get to the apply button - I can drag it up using the top bar and the up arrow but as soon as I let one go to apply the whole thing just drops back to where it was.

Any ideas please as have run out myself.

I brought my sister's compaq presario 5250/128 ram/ K-2 Duron processor to my house to do some maintanence, when I connected it to my monitor the icons were huge and the pages were too big to see past 3/4 down the page. In other words, words like 'ok' 'cancel' 'start' were blocked from view and unaccessable. I went into setting and tried to change the resolution to the right side but it would not move. So I removed the video adapter (in device manager) and rebooted and when it came back up it was the same way. My sister needed the pc back, so I sent it back to her house, just hoping that it would look normal on their monitor and of course it didn't. Before she brought it over to my house it was fine she said the icons were not like this, but now they are. I did not do anything to it except hook it up to my monitor, I couldn't even do any maintenance, the display was so awkward. At their house, I had them go into settings and again the slider would not go to the right, to make the icons smaller.
*Forgot, it's windows 98
Anyone have any suggestions, my sister and her husband are freaking out.

am using windows 98. want to change montior to flat screen. tried a NEC but was told by NEC my 98 couldn't support 1024 x ?, so got a KOGI that had been hooked to an old 95. screen is fuzzy and windows are so large i can't reach the apply or ok buttons. in display there is a minus (-) in front of display adapters; the subtitle is NVIDIA Aladdin TNT2 and a minus (-) in front of monitors with the subtitle of GVISIONL5QX-TIA. Should the display adapters and monitors subtitles be the same? I think the NEC was NVIDIA and I think the KOGI is the GVISION. Any suggestions of Annie?

My question has to do with a black box next to my cursor as I write. How do I delete it? Second issue is reducing the size of my screen when aol comes on. The print and pics are off the screen making it so I have to scroll across to read or see the entire content.

Any suggestions how to correct these two problems?

A:black box nxt to cursor & large screen

Is the black box only there sometimes? Or is it there all the time? Can you take a screen shot of the problem?

As for the sizing issues - it's only a problem when AOL opens? Are you referring to their webpage for the news and other common interests?

What can be done to stop this?

Without knowing what starts it, I wouldn't want to guess how to stop it.
Are your graphics drivers current? What was the update that caused the problem?
Are there any other 'unusual' things happening that might help in determining the problem?

Win XP Home--IE6- Outlook Express 6

Someone I know has used my computer while I was away over the holidays. The system is operating fine but everything visually in IE6 and OE6 appears much larger to the eye and I can not figure out how to reduce the visual on screen.

The desktop icons were also visually very large and I was able to resolve that problem and reduce the size to a smaller one I find satisfactory, but a solution to the problem in IE and OE has not been found. Reducing text size in VIEW does not help.

This is very frustrating and I have not found this addressed in any XP support data I have or perhaps I am looking in the wrong category?

A solution to this issue would be appreciated!

Hello blanquita, and Welcome to Seven Forums.

It could be your DPI settings. If you like, you could see if using OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to restore the default DPI setting (96 DPI) may help.
