I recently added ClearView Tuner and Magnification tools from Microsoft, I have task bar icons that are too large and look fuzzy.  I have removed the applications I installed, tried all the suggestions in the 'Taskbar Icon too big' previous post...any thoughts?

    You might try this program.  A few of the repairs to the taskbar/notification area/quick launch bar are marked as only available to the licensed version, but the price for the licensed version is only $5.00:!.htm

    I just finished installing JAWS and Windows-Eyes, two popular text-to-speech programs.

    The exact same thing happened to me! The taskbar icons were big, fuzzy and very annoying. The responses above did not really help.

    Finally, I just went on the desktop, right clicked and selected Properties.
    That is when I noticed that the Theme was Windows XP (Modified). I changed it to Windows XP, clicked OK... then tada! everything was back to normal!

    Thank goodness too, because this seemed to be the only page in Google that had anything to do with this issue and the suggestions were not working for me.
