I have a laptop running Windows XP and IE 6.0 when I go the the web through IE the webpages all display larger than normal fonts and the webpages dont look like they should.  I have cleared all the temp files, history, etc.  There must be some setting that I can check to fix this but I am unsure where to look.....Thanks

    In Internet Explorer - click on "View" - go down to "Text Size" -
    Set it to "Medium" (or whatever size you want)
