i have a win-xp and when I go to any random website the font/lettering is so small alomost like a size 8 on microsoft word, even when the text size is on "largest" on "View>text size"
and ideas on how to get it back to a normall standard size???

Try downloading Firefox and using it as a browser. In Firefox hold down the ctrl key and increase the test size with your wheel mouse. In IE go to View and you can sometime increase the text size

Sorry Mitul123 - I did not read the part which you have already tried the View option

Mitul123, have you tried clicking on Start, Help & Support , Customizing Your Computer, Fonts & Text?

Mitul123 Yes you said you tried that. It does not always work in IE but seems to always work in Firefox

Try, Tools, Options, Accessibility, Ignore font sizes specified on web pages.

I would also recommend an alternative browser like Firefox or Opera. click here
