    For some reason my computer has changed. When I open a jpg or any picture file it opens in a small box that I have to maximize. What the heck setting did I change by mistake?

    Winders is supposed to keep that info in your user prefs, but it'll sometimes get confused.

    Certain viruses can cause this as well as some spyware.

    Make sure your machine is clean and then open a pic, move it to the upper-left corner of the screen then drag the lower-right hand corner down to make it fill the screen.

    Hit X and then reopen the pic.

    It be fullscreen and should stay that way unless the system is still infected.

    Good luck!

    Any thoughts on Fox Fire?

    Do you mean FireFox from Mozilla.org?

    Love it. It isn't nearly as vulnerable to malware as Internet Exploder is.
