IE not displaying pages properly

I can't work out what setting is causing this, but something is missing ... it's like being back on the first version of IE.

Anyone know why it is displaying like this ? click here

Have you been to View>Text size and altered the setting?

Yes terryf, tried that with no cure.

Thanks VoG .... Unfortunately I don't have a winXP CD as it came pre-installed. It says at the start

<<Note: You should not be prompted for installation disks during this process. If you are, please contact Microsoft for assistance.>>

But for XP it says

<<Note: Before proceeding, ensure that your Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM is available.>>

It is most frustrating to me that people continually say in the forum that they don't have a system disk, why don't these bl**dy sales-people make a bit more profit and sell, at least, an oem copy of the os. I realise that it isn't the fault of new-comers to computing but it seems to me such an intrinsic part of the purchased item.

I'll go with the F11 factory reset the computer offers, I think IE is messed up, so I'll try IE repair first and if it asks for the disc I'll just factory reset the whole box. Thanks ... and yes it would be simpler if getting discs was an automatic part of buying a PC, instead of an option hidden away.

Factory reset cured it .... must have been corrupted.
