Font size when viewing web pages in IE too small to read on some websites

Hi all,

Hopefully a relatively quick and easy question for you - I have one single user who has this problem. When viewing websites in IE6 (I'd rather not install IE7 if there is any other way), the text is tiny. It seems to be a specific percentage smaller than normal, as on sites with very large text it's still readable, but on sites with small text you can't read a word of it.

I've attached Example.jpg which shows the txt on the machine having the problem.
I've attached Example2.jpg which shows the same website from my PC instead.

So my quesiton is simple - What could be effecting the display size of the text from a website on your local PC? I've never seen this issue before and I need to sort it asap, so if anyone can reel off a place to start I'd greatly appreciate it!

Many thanks as always,

you can adjust the text size of ie6.

Select View, then text size.

HaHa! That is unbelievable... I swear I looked in View straight away...

However it definitely works ok for me! I'll check with the user and if it works as well (which i'm sure it will) I'll accept the solution and go hide under a rock for a few months...

On a lighter note, many thanks for the quick response!
