Weird Zoom Problem on 7

Hi. I've googled and everything to look at this problem, but I can't find a solution. My resolution is on max, and it only did this after I rebooted my laptop.

My windows on firefox and IE are normal size. Everything else is bigger.

This is an Asus K60, and it's only about 2 1/2 months old.

Just an FYI, I've tried reducing the resolution, applying it, then reapplying it to max. I've tried windows and -. I know I did not change the settings when I rebooted, it simply ... happened. I can't give a better explanation, but if you need more details, I can try to give them.

Not sure what you mean! I can see nothing wrong with your screenshot but I assume this is IE or Firefox. When you say "everything else is bigger" do you mean that you can't see all of a normal program window. Here's an idea. Right click on your Desktop, choose "Personalize" then "Display" at bottom left and if that is set to 150% edit to 100% or try 125%.
