Grammer I'm not sure because I was wondering that very same thing once but never followed it up. Do me a favour. Scan one just as it is (negative I presume?) and mail it to me.
I'll see what I can do with it. Probably nothing but I'll give it a go. :cool:

Snowy, Norton takes up tons of space on your pc anyway.
Here is one the the most trusted Anti Virus programs out there.
And it's free!! :D

Make sure you uninstall Norton completely first. It tends to leave traces of itself all over the place and may cause minor glitches.
If you need any help givvus a shout. :cool:

You may as well download AVG now anyway and keep the installation file on your pc, and and when you go to uninstall Norton, do it offline. When it's gone, reconnect to the net and install AVG. Good luck with it! :cool:

Let me know when you uninstall Norton Snowy. Like I said it tends to leave traces of itself all over the place and sometimes conflicts with other AV programs. :cool:

Hi Grammer
in the browser window at the top right you have: - square and x

ok hit the square symbol and that should set the page to your screen
hope this helps

I think Ted means to maximise the window or restore it...very top right hand corner on the title bar...does that fix it?

Postby Strum » Fri Jul 18, 2008 3:37 pm

umm thats odd. The images etc are the same size so the changes I made shouldnt make any difference. Can you tell if what maybe making the page bigger?
Tell you what... go to the homepage, press the "print screen" button (beside F12)
Open MS paint.
Right click and choose paste.
The way you are seeing your page should now be there.
Go to file / save as, and save it as a jpg and email it to me.
