Which platform (PC, Apple, etc.) and which browser are you using?

Tom, mine sometimes does this. If you are using Internet Explorer, click on the VIEW word at the top of your browser, then select text size & set your size to medium or whichever size suits your monitor.

Also if you go to tools and internet options you can then change the font type. The default font table is normally as below......

This can result from a conflict with saved ebay URLs. For example it sometimes results from bookmarking the sign-in page.

Personaly i think Microsoft sucks, the guy is greedy and nasty in the way his empire wants to take over the computing world.
I use two hard drives and my other one uses Linux. It may not,(yet) be too user friendly but its great, its totaly free and iunlike windows, it doesnt suffer with spyware, it organises the files correctly so you never have to do clean up or defrag, it has dvd and cd burning programs built in, phot programs are built in, open office is free and is every bit as good as microsoft "rip off" office, upgrades are free and when a new version comes out you dont have to buy a new PC to run it.
It also reconises 90% of printers and scanners without the need to load drivers on.

Did i just get carried away?? [Big Grin]

Yes you did, and you didn't even talk about Apple's OS X there [Big Grin]

Me, I use Mozilla (not Firefox - I use the suite)... And 3rd-party software for HD backups, defragging, media playback (WMP is such a piece of #$%@), even file browsing (Powerdesk rules!)...

OK, so now I got carried away. [Roll Eyes]
