Default Having to scroll to read posts

The past day or two, I have had to scroll over to read an entire post. Is something different? The headers with ads seem to be a bit wider too...

Hmm. I'm not seeing anything different on the site. Has your monitor resolution changed?

No resolution change that I'm aware of. Unless the computer did it on its own, which is entirely possible with my computer! LOL

Not sure if the screen print will help, but it looks like the ad runs over the edge at the upper right...?

I don't have to scroll in this thread...but I do in the You Can Do It Challenge thread. I'm using IE, but I haven't done anything different. I did try changing the screen resolution but it didn't help. Just made everything smaller and I had to scroll too.

Did someone post a large picture on that thread? I've seen where that can make the page wider than it normally is.

That's what it reminds me of, but it happens in several threads, and I can't see anything out of the ordinary.

If I "maximize" my screen to use the whole screen, the scrolling isn't an issue, so that's what I am doing. It's funny but at some screen sizes the little orange flowery thing on top of and below the word "forum" doesn't line up with the word. I'll try to add a screen shot to show you what I mean. I have an older computer with XP running and not sure I want to download another browser since I rarely have issues with IE.

Are you in the most current version of IE? We can't reproduce the issue in IE 7, 8 or 9 - so without you trying another browser it will be hard for us to know where the issue is.

I am one of those "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" type of gals! I am still loving XP and when this computer of mine goes, I am going to cry hysterically. I have Vista on another computer, but that one isn't connected to internet. I need to buy a plug in to make it wireless, then maybe I will start using that one more. Vista is not my favorite, and I know there is Windows 7, maybe 8, but they messed up when they ended XP in my opinion...but I never did like change!

I loved XP too - and Vista was stupid. But I have to tell you - Windows 7 is awesome.

The newest one I've heard is not nearly as good as Windows 7.

But old IE will bust a lot of the internet for you - IE is a troublesome browser to begin with, but old versions are horrid.

Agree with XP and Vista assessments...but as for IE, I've never ever had an issue with it. Must be a rarity?

eta: Almost every time I use IE, I get the little exclamation point thing in the bottom left of the browser and it says some kind of error. Most pages still load but that error just being there bugs me.
I have never put credit card info in on any computer, so I don't worry so much about that. Sometimes I get a "done, but with errors" message, but I never see any errors so I let that slide. LOL

Just hopping in to say that I love XP too, Kathy, and we still run it on two out of three computers. It was the best OS after NT4. Vista I never liked but Lydia's right - you wouldn't mind switching up to Windows 7 . 8 I've not tried yet, I'm with you in the "ain't broke, don't fix it" class.
