Anyone know how to fix this?

Ok, so here is my screen. It cuts off the last right row of smilies. I can still get them by clicking the more button. But, I would rather fix this. It worked once before, but I just can't figure it out. Anyone have any ideas???

Mine did the same thing! :eek: Plus, the text size decreased ALOT, and I cannot figure out why!

Computers can really suck at times!!!

Honestly, I would get rid of IE7. that thing is so buggy it isn't even funny. I almost guarantee you that is your problem. Go back to IE6 until they get all the kinks worked out.

It's not IE 7, mine works fine. I use Mozilla Firefox(friggin amazing)though, anyways, try shrinking the page size. On IE 7 in the bottom right hand corner, there's a zoom tool. See if that helps

Ed, this will fix your screen if the text is too small.

Dragoneye, thanks, but I tried that too. I tried zooming in and back out. The page will shrink so much that you can't see the text, but will not bring back my last row of smilies. Oh well...it's not that big of a deal. But, it's just annoying as all hell.

Thanks for the replies, guys.

Sorry if I insult you with this, but have you tried scrolling over?
maybe your screen is just too small-I am widescreen so I have no problems

Bro, I'm not the most computer literate. I know a lot to get by, but there's a whole heck of a lot I don't know. I don't take offense AT ALL. I used the mouse clicking the center button and scrolled over (if that's what you mean). It moves the entire screen to the right, but if you look closely at the picture I posted, you'll notice that the screen will go from light gray (where the smilies are) to dark gray. The picture is cut off of the smilies screen, but the website still takes up more of the screen to the right...if that makes sense. I want the inner lighter gray w/ the smilies to be larger. I've tried all versions of the site and all do the same thing. It didn't used to be like that.

Any other ideas maybe?

As Dragoneye suggested earlier, maybe try downloading firefox and see if it works any better. I use firefox all of the time, I personally think it is a much better browser than internet explorer....

NO, no...You're just not as good as us...

I did some playing around and have figured somehing out:p : it is Internet explorer, since it treats the smiles box as completely separate from the site...

What would I advise:

1) right-click on your desktop, and go to settings, turn your resolution up as high as you can take it (this will seem to shrink everything, so don't be surprised)
2) then, go to the right hand scroll bar in IE 7 and continue to the right hand border of the browser until you get those horizontal arrows, click-hold-and stretch out your browser. This should fix it.

-OR-
1) go to http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/
and download Mozilla firefox --- Firefox doesn't have this problem..

Hope this helps

Well one thing man, you need to drop the Norton. Norton, Mcafee, etc are all very weak antiviruses. Spyware, adware, and viruses can cause problems with all programs. I use somthin called Panda Titanium, I have used it for 2 years only had 2 viruses that got through and it still wiped em out when it did its routine system search.

I've had Norton for oh....4...maybe 5 years and haven't had a single virus come through...

This is how I am right now trying to read the screen! Each letter looks like a little flea sitting on the screen. Let's see if I can get this...moving my mouse over to the right, but nothing's happening...no arrows.

Ok...I got step one down, but am having trouble w/ step two. Explain in detail exactly what you mean. I got the smilies box to completely appear, but everything else is freakin tiny!

I just meant for you to expand the IE 7 window

I know what you mean everything does get tiny--you'll get used to it :eek: , I personally like it better this way because you can fit so much more on your screen.

But if you really don't like it, tell me your minimum resolution choice and your highest choice and I'll see what I can do for your eyes

800X600 to the highest 1280X1024. If I go up to the 1280, everything is too small and I can't read. If I go one step up from 800, the right smilies are half cut off. The next step up and the letters get too small and it begins putting a strain on my eyes. Sure, I can have a heck of a lot more on the screen, but still kinda small.

Then I reccommend getting mozilla Firefox.go to the site I listed. Keep in mind you can keep IE 7 even though you also have Mozilla. You're going to need it too, some programs only run with IE.

Of course you could also just downgrade to IE6, but I wouldn't...

Thanks for all the advice. So far, it's only the right row of the smilies. I haven't had any other problems or noticed anything else going wrong. I'll probably keep the IE7 for now. If something else comes up, I just might try that other program. Again, thanks.
