    I had this problem on my computer..
    When in Internet Explorer my fonts some how ended up real small, hard for me to read. I tried changing my theme...restoring settings. Nothing fixed it.
    It was really driving me crazy.
    So...........Here's the tip.
    And you may already know this.
    But for those that don't....

    When your in Internet Explorer and for example you're here on Flashkit.com board.
    Hold down your CTRL key on your keyboard and then use your middle mouse scroll button. This will change your font size.
    Hopefully this will help some people from going blind.
    I don't have to buy glasses now.....I can read the board once again

    This may work on other OS's, not sure.

    then change it. That works for all IE and all Windows, and Mac as well...

    Here's another fun thing for WinXP users: goto a folder and press Ctrl+F! It's so so cool.
