Hi

I had the same trouble myself. Startup, Icons huge and all over the place. Restart and back to normal. I had tried various suggestions regarding Ratio and also wondered about the hearingaid battery which cause all sorts of problems last time it needed replacing. BUT quite by chance found my answer. I run on Firefox and a window appeared about FF being slow to start or not starting at all. I followed the prompts and completely cured large iconitis and speeded up PC incredibly as well.
So, Click on HELP, then TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION then RESET FIREFOX.
Hope this helps and works for you. Presumably there will be similar systems in place for other systems.
