A couple of niggly things that have happened and not sure why. Firstly the horizontal taskbar along the bottom of the screen has suddenly doubled in width. I've tried the ususal unlocking the taskbar and trying to raise/lower the horizontal bar via the arrows but it will only go so far down. Secondly for some reason the 'work offline' option in the Tools section on the toolbar is suddenly becoming ticked. I've never changed it once. I only found it when I couldn't connect to a webpage and the message came up 'You are working offline. Check Tools' I am permanently connected via BT Total broadband so I'm missing something! Windows XP Pro is my OP. Thanks in anticipation.
