Small screens on browser.

Just a small problem, when browsing on the Internet I go to a link from a website to complete details i.e., when doing a scan for spyware. In most cases I get a small screen and I am unable to answer the questions asked as not all the wording is shown.

I am unable to expand this screen as the expand button in the right hand corner is greyed out. I cannot even expand it by using the mouse. I use a 19" flat panel monitor screen resolution is 1280x1084 refresh rate is 75 htz. Anyone any ideas please.
Thanks in advance.

which browser are you using at the time? I think I know the scenarion you are speaking of and it is entirely independent of your monitor or resolution settings - it is down to some sites screwing up your browsers default frame setting I think - probably because they are using frames rather than stylesheets.

A couple of suggestions - try with another browser - some may be more tolerant and able to handle bad coding server side maybe. Also try right click on the taskbar and resize - maybe that can help you out.

Lastly if you think I have misunderstood your problem then please supply us a screen shot so we can see what you do mean!
Thanks for the quick reply Mainframeguy. I am using IE7 but I also got the same problem with IE6. I also have Firefox installed and I will try it on that. I have also noticed this problem on some programmes installed. Creative Labs was one where on one of the services you could not see any action buttons so it was useless.

You got my problem right and I will try your suggestions and report back.

It could be a script disabling the resize option. Firefox has an option to block the javascript that does this (Im sure there is other programming languages that could do this as well).

Check under Tools>Options>Contents>Advanced (across from Javascript. Give that a shot.
I do not have the problem with Firefox it works OK there. It just happens on Internet Explorer. I have tried the various suggestions but without any luck. Could not find anything concerning Javascript on the advanced tab. Thanks anyway.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
