New computer / small problems

Couple of small problems with my new computer.

Just set it up and my freeseve home page is only narrow with 2" either side of the screen.All the page is on the screen ,its just so narrow.

Every other web page is ok. Its nothing to do with maximising the screen.
any idears please.

Another thing is i have just gone from windows me to xp.
so where are my flashing internet connection tv thinges in the bottom right corner to tell me if i am connected or not.
hope you have some idears.

Control panel, Network connections, right click the connection, Properties. Tick "Show icon in notification area when connected".

Don't know about the other problem, sorry.

i think its just the way the page is designed. click here looks as you describe.

yes ,that it exactly.

this morning on my old computer i had full on my new one i get this.

my guess is your screen resolution is set to 1024x768 or higher and your old computer is set to 800x600. change you resolution to 800x600 and you will see the page will fill your screen. note if you have a 17' monitor this setting will make everything very big and its really only suited to a 15 monitor.

'control panel/display/settings/advanced' and drag the slider.

sorry 'control panel/display/settings'

thanks ,
but before i do this why are all the other web pages ok exept for freesereve.

i suppose it depends how the pages are designed, most now are optimised for a 1024x768 resolution.
