    Hi Lisa,

    First of all, please do not post using all capitals. This is considered to
    be shouting and, by some people, rude. Use capitals only to emphasise or
    highlight something. Now to answer your query. Do you have an active
    screensaver? If so, then try the following. Right-click anywhere on a blank
    part of your desktop. In the menu that appears, select (left-click)
    'Personalize'. Next, select 'Screen Saver' on the 'Personalize appearance and
    sounds' screen that opens. Click to remove the tick next to 'On resume,
    display logon screen'. Click 'OK' to save your changes and then close the
    opened 'Personalize appearance and sounds' screen.

    Hi there, I noticed your comment on shouting, and though I agree, I fully
    understand ADVENT's frustration. Perhaps you can help me with my problem too.
    When I leave my PC idle for a few hours (sometimes I just close the lid at
    night instead of shutting down) I find the appearance of my desktop becomes
    magnified, the clock stretches out of shape, and the fonts look strange. If
    I go ahead and use it, everything that comes up is also magnified. It's
    disconcerting, so I always restart the computer and it works normally. By the
    way I WISH I NEVER GOT VISTA! ;) If I could turn back my elongated clock I
    would stick with XP.

    Hi Linnybins,

    First of all, please do not tack a question onto someone else's thread
    unless the question is directly related to that already posted. Start a new
    thread instead. That said, I'll endeavor to answer your query. To do so, I
    need a bit more information from you. What is the make and model of your
    laptop? What is the screen's native resolution? What resolution and colour
    depth are you using when everything appears normal and what are those values
    when the screen appears 'strange'? It sounds as though it could be a graphics
    driver problem.
