Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Following installation of Norton 2008 all pictures viewed through internet explorer are poor quality and pixilated


Answers :

Do you use ie6?
IE6 is set up to resize the images based on the Display DPI setting. You can either set the DPI to the default (Normal - 96) or remove IE6's UseHR registry \015\012key to deactivate image resizing. Here are the relevant information (from Microsoft \015\012Knowledge Base):
\015\012Image Scaling in Internet Explorer (hi-res)
\015\012
\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012How to Activate Image Scaling
\015\012Internet Explorer 6 and later automatically adjusts the scale on higher resolution \015\012systems when the DPI setting is higher than 96 DPI and the "UseHR" registry value \015\012is added to the registry. These are usually done by the manufacturers of higher resolution \015\012systems.
\015\012\015\012_registry()\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012warn.gifWarning!!!:\015\012Using the Windows Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious\015\012problems requiring the re-installation of your operating system and\015\012possible loss of data. I do not and will not support problems that\015\012arise from you editing your own registry. Use the Registry Editor and\015\012my directions at your own risk. Be sure that you create a backup of\015\012your registry and be very sure that you know how to restore it. If you\015\012are not sure how to do both of these things then STOP here!! and read the directions.
\015\012\015\012Set the DPI
\015\012These are the steps for changing the DPI setting on your system.
\015\012
\015\012
    Right-click the Windows desktop to display the context menu.
    \015\012Click Properties on the context menu to display the Display Properties dialog.
    \015\012Click the Settings tab on the Display Properties dialog to display the Settings \015\012tab.
    \015\012Click the Advanced button on the Settings tab to display the monitor properties \015\012dialog.
    \015\012Select a DPI setting in the Display frame of the monitor properties dialog to change \015\012the DPI setting.
    \015\012Restart your system to allow the changes to take effect.
    \015\012Add the UseHR Registry Entry
    \015\012The UseHR value is added to the Main key under "Internet Explorer" as follows:
    \015\012
    \015\012HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Internet Explorer\\Main
    \015\012Right Click in the right pane and select New>DWORD value and set its data to 00000001
\015\012This problem can also be caused by bad video drivers. Update your drivers from \015\012the manufacturers site.
