Many graphics drivers have the facility to turn the screen sideways - for portrait mode monitors.

Look in the graphics driver or tray icon for rotation.

I think you are very wise ignoring he registry error
link.

Regarding your sideways text, I assume you mean that your taskbar is now showing either down the left or right hand side of your screen???

If this is the case, place your mouse over the taskbar right click and remove the tick by the lockbar. You can then move/drag the taskbar back to the bottom again, right click again and reset the lockbar.

I think it's a scam.
