The icon size in the start-menu suddenly changed, along whith the taskbar and
quicklaunch icons. They are now big and ugly. Anyone know how to change the
size back to normal?

Forgot to say that the desktop icons are normal. only the icons that normally
are small (like the ones in the taskbar) have changed size.

With the Classic Start Menu...
Right click the Start button | Properties |
Start Menu tab | Customize button |
Check: ? Show small icons in Start Menu |
OK |Apply | OK

[[Reduces the size of the icons in the Start menu. ]]

Hope this helps. Let us know.
