Internet Explorer Got "Big"

Hello experts,

I have the strangest problem.  Last night, I noticed that all my web pages now come up in IE "huge".  What I mean is all the text that is displayed on pages is in a very large font.  Graphics look ok, but all text has doubled in size and it looks terrible.  I have tried resetting all the default settings in IE, reinstalling IE... nothing works.  

Does anybody know what this is?  My only other solution would be to reinstall Windows, which I don't wanna do.  Or start using another browser! ;)

Thanks in advance,
Roxanne
