As the icons have increased in size that means ur screen resolution has changed

Goto desktop
right click on desktop  >>  Properties  >>  settings tab 
now u will find the Screen Resolution adjust it according to ur requirement and u will find ur icon size small again  ( if u increase the screen resolution)

For internet settings Create a New Connection Wizard
or u can check from Network Connection whether ur Local Area Network is Enable or not.

Thank You

Hi i have an emachines 3230 desktop pc and i want to know how to restore it back to factory settings. i have no disks or anything for it can you help?

Hi big sam666...
You can restore your computer back to an earlier time when it was running properly by doing the following.
Left click on "Start"> then hold your mouse over the following >All Programs">Accessories>System Tools>Left click on System Restore and follow directions given to you.
If that is not what you want then you will have to go to "My Computer" and left click the icon, then Right click on your Main drive (normally C:)>the click on "Format"...this will clear everything off of the computer except what orginally came on the computer.
If you do a format, you will lose all your data,pictures,programs,etc that you have installed, but it will give you a "New" computer. So be sure to back up all the info you want onto a different hard drive for later reinstallment.
