Hi, I have a friend who has got a problem with large window boxes his PC had an illegal error and closed down in safe mode when he restarted his PC all the window boxes were large to the point of some of them going off screen so he can't read them, I advised him to go to desktop right click properties and click on settings and change it that way but it didn't work, neither of us are that PC technical so I was wondering if anyone could help here...Not sure which windows he has I've sent an email asking him but he hasn't answered yet so if it's important I will post it again when I find out... thanks..

It sounds like his graphics card drivers have become corrupt. He will need to reinstall them. They should be on a disk that came with the pc.

Have you tried going into control panel> display> settings> and re-setting the screen size to 600x800?

It sounds as if the resolution is too low making the windows themselves too big.
