My wife just had this same problem. The entire screen gets zoomed in to where the icons are large. I found that it is a 3-finger double tap function that causes this.

Try double tapping your screen with 3 fingers simultaneously and see if this fixes your problem.

Actually iloks is correct here. It's double tap with THREE fingers.....not two fingers. Easy as pie. : )

I had the same problem with my new iPhone 3GS, knew about the 2 fingers triple tap. Tried this and it worked a couple of times then stopped working.

I've now turned this off as it's really annoying.
Settings > General > Accessibility > Triple-click Home - turn OFF

This seems to have worked for me

How to open my cellphone in faebook


What you need to do is contact your local service provider (e.g mine was Mobilicity) and then tell them that you're having trouble receiving a confirmation code from Facebook. They should be able to fix the problem, because I received my confirmation code right after.

(By the way, you can only use your cell phone number once, because you're only supposed to have one account, according to Facebook)

You could also use the calling option, and have Facebook call you to send you the verification code.

DON'T use your home phone number for these options, because if you need to verify your account again, they will automatically text you with the number you gave them and tell you to type in the confirmation code
Step 1Go online to Facebook's Mobile page.
Step 2Type your email address and Facebook password into the corresponding text-fields and click "Login" to sign-in to your Facebook account.
Step 3Scroll down and click "Text a link to my phone." It may take up to five minutes to receive the text message from Facebook.
Step 4Type your Boost Mobile phone number into the text-field and click "Text link to my phone."
Step 5Open the SMS application on your Boost Mobile phone and open the text message sent to you by Facebook. Click the link provided in the text message. This link automatically directs your phone to download the Facebook application. Access the new application by going to your main apps menu and selecting the Facebook icon.
Get Facebook Mobile on Boost Standard Cellular Handset Step 1Go online to Facebook's Mobile download page.
Step 2Type your email address and password into the corresponding text-fields and click "Login" to sign-in to your Facebook account.
Step 3Scroll down and click "Sign Up for Facebook Text Messages."
Step 4Select "Boost Mobile" from the drop-down menu and click "Next."
Step 5Activate your Boost cellular handset, open your SMS application and select the option to create a new SMS.
Step 6Address the SMS to "32665" and type "F" in the message field. Click "Send." Wait a couple of minutes for a reply. The reply contains a confirmation code.
Step 7Type the confirmation code into text-field and click "Confirm."
Step 8Configure your Facebook Mobile settings according to your preferences. For instance, if you want to update your Facebook status with text messages, click the "ON" button bellow "Texts are." If you want to receive text messages of certain friends' status updates, type their name in the text-field beside "Whose status updates should go to my phone." Once you are finished, click "Save Preferences."
Step 9Update your status by typing it into a new text-message and addressing it to "32665."

Code Oxcooooo22


Even when I am using the administrator account I can not download updates
from the windows update site the yellow icon used to appear but no updates,
now no icon appears, these messages come up whenever I've tried to download
updates manually from the windows update site [Error number: 0x8DDD0002] or
something that goes like this OxOOOA46 and there is a link to where one gets
instructions on fixing it. I have done what was suggested which was to go to
tools internet explorer security and make sure user persistence user data was
enabled I've done all this to no avail. I've been told that I need to be an
administrator to download updates but anytime I've tried to download updates
I've been using an account with administrator privileges.

I've had problems accessing the internet for ages but it is only lately that
I can't download updates from the windows update site.

I keep getting these error messages when I switch on my computer using the
limited account. ccApap.exe - Application Error.
The application failed to initialise properly (OxcOOOOO22) click on ok to
terminate the application.

I click on ok and then another message comes up osCheck.exe - Application
Error
The application failed to initialise properly (OxcOOOOO22)click on ok to
terminate the program

Again I click on ok and another message comes up PIFSvc.exe - Application
Error
The application failed to initialise properly(OxcOOOOO22) Click on OK to
terminate the application.

I click on ok and windows loads as normal. I can access programs such as
works and windows media player but my anti virus (Norton Internet Security
2007) has disappeared but when I use the Administrator Account Norton seems
to be there and seems to work ok.

My computer is a year old and I have had to get it repaired a couple of
times but I don't want to spend any more on it as they can't seem to fix the
problem. I can do what I want so long as it is offline anything that
involves the internet I have problems with. The computer Operating System is
Windows xp Home Edition with service pack 2. I use Internet Explorer version
7.

Any ideas on why I have problems with the internet and what I can do to
solve them would be much appreciated.


None of those failing modules that you mention are from Microsoft.
I suspect that they may be from your security package(s).
Try enabling the Windows firewall only. Uninstall your other security packages
and then retry getting the updates.

BTW if you are only concerned with getting the updates but don't care how
you could also try using the Windows Update Catalog, download and install
manually from there.

I go to facebook.com or facebook were its bookmarked and everything having to do with facebook is so small i cant read it


HIt CTRL and the "+" at the same time to zoom/enlarge the print on the page. You don't need to hit the shift key. Alternately, you can go to the "View" tab at the top and select "Zoom" to enlarge the text on the page. Hope this answers your question. All the best!

Enlarged icons and text


The following should get you back to normal:

  1. Click the "Start" button
  2. Click "Control Panel"
  3. Click "Display"
  4. Click the "Settings" tab on the top
  5. Near the bottom is a box that says "Screen Resolution" , to make the stuff on the screen smaller , slide the bar toward the right and hit apply. You may need to slide it over a couple of times to make the display look correct on your screen.

That should fix you right up!

Your mobile phone has a virus so you will need to take the phone to a mobile service center and have them re-flash the phone to correct this issue....or you can try downloading an anti-virus to correct this issue.

Enlarged icons and text


Sounds like the display resolution has been lowered, just go in your control panel > Display > Settings, and set it at a higher setting.
