Try: rightclick on the shortcut to IE | Properties | and in the button marked 'Run' on the dropdown menu alter the setting.

What exactly are you rightclicking on?

You should be rightclicking on the shortcut that you usually click on to open IE

this only seems to happen with desktop explorer icon as explorer in task bar opens ok. not apparent in firefox?, also unable to apply system restore in that it goes through all the motions then says cant restore it. thanks

Try this - open IE. Enlarge the window. Open a second version of IE. Enlarge that window. Close the first version, then close the second version.
