Question about Computers & Internet
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 key to deactivate image resizing. Here are the relevant information (from Microsoft Knowledge Base):
Image Scaling in Internet Explorer (hi-res)
How to Activate Image Scaling
Internet Explorer 6 and later automatically adjusts the scale on higher resolution systems when the DPI setting is higher than 96 DPI and the "UseHR" registry value is added to the registry. These are usually done by the manufacturers of higher resolution systems.
_registry() Warning!!!: Using the Windows Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems requiring the re-installation of your operating system and possible loss of data. I do not and will not support problems that arise from you editing your own registry. Use the Registry Editor and my directions at your own risk. Be sure that you create a backup of your registry and be very sure that you know how to restore it. If you are not sure how to do both of these things then STOP here!! and read the directions.

Click the Settings tab on the Display Properties dialog to display the Settings tab.
Click the Advanced button on the Settings tab to display the monitor properties dialog.

Restart your system to allow the changes to take effect.
Add the UseHR Registry Entry
The UseHR value is added to the Main key under "Internet Explorer" as follows:
