I went to use my internet this morning and it was acting strange. Its like its on zoom or something. The address bar and top tool bar only appear when i move the cursor to the top of the screen. Also when they do appear there is no "file" or "tool" buttons. Any idea what caused this? Or how to fix it? I had a virus called JS/Downloader.Agent which my AGV anti virus couldn't delete. I moved it to the vault though and think i've deleted it.

Of course a better fix for IE is to surf with Firefox (or Opera, or *insert almost any other browser in this space*).

Sheesh. No lost opportunity to preach?

I don't understand why anyone would need a different browser for something that is not a fault at all. He must have pressed F11 before to go into kiosk mode, and pressing F11 again just return to normal mode.

Good to hear it was something simple! Tongue out

No point in changing browser as they all have the same function.

Same function? Maybe out of the box as it were, but when you take extensions into account Firefox is quite far in front.

I don't think he should change browsers for the non-fault, but because Firefox is free, and who doesn't want something better than what they currently have?

*end proselytizing rant* Tongue out

Okay I am locking this now.

I was merely reffering to the fact that kiwigreen1976 must have hit F11 by accident, and that by changing browser will not help that. You can make all browsers go to full screen mode.
