Windows 7: Can't make image smaller again - help?

Can't make image smaller again - help?

On the website spaceweather.com SpaceWeather.com -- News and information about meteor showers, solar flares, auroras, and near-Earth asteroids

I clicked on the image of the sun on the left side to make it larger. The image became larger with a magnifying glass cursor with a "+" in it. Using that I made it even larger, but the cursor did not change to the "-" sign, so now I can't make it smaller again.

So now every time I enlarge the original image from the website it opens in it's extremely large size.

Being an amateur astronomer / solar observer, I check this website every day so this is annoying I can't shrink the image back down.

Any advice is appreciated! Thanks.

I think if the website is not working
Try to reboot, does not work then
Delete the cookie
Cookies - Delete

If it still does not work, try and download ccleaner
It will delete all cookies.
You will have to reset your sites that you have automatic login etc.

The website seems to be working fine when enlarging and sizing down the image, as I've tried it with two other computers, not running Windows 7. I'll try the other suggestions. Thanks.

Then use ccleaner, may be your cache. Its your computer that is the problem.

I downloaded and ran ccleaner. Didn't help. When I click on the image on the website it still opens in the extremely large view with no way to size it down.
Any OTHER suggestions? Thanks in advance, keep the advice coming.

In the Internet Options>Advanced, make sure the accessibility section is unchecked and that the Multimedia section has "enable image resizing" checked.

I have tried all the suggestions so far, with no luck. On other computers enlarging the image on the website allows it to open in a larger size correctly and allows it to be resized down.

This worked correctly when I first tried it with this Windows 7 computer, but I must have clicked on something else acccidentally or hit some key, because there is nothing I can do to make the enlarging/resizing of the image work correctly.

Thanks for the advice... keep the suggestions coming.

Here's something I've discovered. This problem exists when I'm using version 10.00.0079.2600 of IE. This version is part of my Qwest DSL by MSN. I don't have the Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>Reset option.

If I open the separate standalone version 8.0 IE. The image sizing up and down of the website image works properly.

So somewhere along the line I've clicked something or hit a key when using my DSL/MSN version of IE that has messed things up.
