    I have the same problem. I have two unsigned msstyles installed: Thallos
    and Zune Final (a Zune theme that's actually complete). Are you using a
    custom msstyles or WindowBlinds?

    This is a common problem with IE8 32-bit edition. whats funny is nobody
    knows why it happens.
    You can put a band-aid on it so you can see your text boxes and buttuns
    again. Just follow these steps:

    1.open up notepad and copy the following line and paste it into your

    button, input {font-size:14px !important;}

    2.save this into your documents(or where ever you like), Dont just
    click File>Save!! Click File>SAVEAS!!
    then at the bottom of the dialog box look for "Save as Type:" and
    select "All Files (*.*)" then in the
    File Name field choose a name for this file (any name will do), just
    make sure that at the end of the name you type
    css! this is very important. For example-- TheNameOfMyFile.css
    then save it for now

    3. Open Your internet explorer

    4. In your menu bar choose Tools (If you do not see somthing that says
    tools at the top, then right-click
    the top area of your browser; under the address field; and in the
    pop-up menu select "Menu Bar")

    5. Under Tools select Internet Options

    6. a dialog box will apear look for a button towards the botton that
    says "Accesibility", Click this.
    (If you dont see "Accesibility", then make sure the General Tab is
    selected at the top)

    7. Now another little window pops up; look for the check box that says
    "Format Documents using my own style sheet".
    Select this box.

    8.click on the browse button and select the folder that you made with
    note pad.
    Thats it. once you select OK the textboxes and buttons shound be bigger
    for you.
    Hope this helps you out
