IE 6 and Window Size

  msmb 07:06 06 Jun 2004

Ever since reinstalling XP (pro) the "open link in new window" in IE produces a window half size.
Same with open by hyperlink........
I want all new IE windows to open full size.......
Anybody know the setting or tweak??

I got fed up with the same problem when the usual methods to cure it failed and installed GRFT's suggested solution a few weeks back.

It works a treat but I installed it from a recent PC Advisor cover disk (April 2004).
