win 98 start menu width

Somehow the start menu on a windows 98 system in my office has changed width to only about 50 pixels. Is there a way that I can reset this to normal? (in the registry or by modifying an .ini?

Thanks

If the above doesn't help, try running the commands below from Start > Run.

regsvr32.exe /i shdocvw.dll
(This checks and sets between 2,000 and 3,000 registry entries)

and

regsvr32 /i shell32.dll
(This checks and sets between 4,000 and 6,000 registry entries)

These command lines all rebuild parts of the registry back to the default.

Be aware that any changes made in the areas rebuilt may be (but not necessarily) lost.

If this occurred just recently, you could try restoring the Registry.
Select Start > Run > then type the following
     
scanreg /restore                          (note the space between g and / )

Press enter, & select a date *prior* to the Start menu width problem occurring.  You should have about five days from which to choose.
Now reboot.      Any improvement?

Right-click the Start button and select Properties.

You can take a look there and restore defaults.
