Yesterday i finally downloaded and installed Vista SP1 after being continually reminded of it by the
little icon at the bottom of the screen. I left it to do its thing while i went back and when i got back home and booted up the whole display is supersized. The desktop icons, internet explorer, web pages.. everything. Its all way too big for the screen, pixelated and ugly.

Dont know too much technical stuff, but my comp is a Dell, 1.80Ghz, 2GB RAM if it makes any difference.

Does anybody know how to fix this? Or can anyone tell me how to get rid of the service pack?
I jst want it to go back to how it was.

Right-click the desktop and adjust screen resolution. Having said that you should really install SP2 now.
