Browsers seem to resize? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Forum

    My browsers seem to resize themselves after loading the page, it happens 100% on IE9 and around 90% of sites on chrome, but never on google search when using google chrome.

    It does not seem to be a driver issue, but it only affects my laptop. Its a  DELL Vostro and is windows updated fully and both browsers have been uninstalled and reinstalled.

    can anyone help?
    Thanks in advance

    NN

  • I found the answer, after playing around booting to safe mode etc, it was definately a plugin causing the issue. I then opened task manager and started end some of the processes, ShockWave process was causing the issue.

    I then went to chrome:plugins and disabled the shockwave plugin and all is working again.
    It does not seem to be that easy with IE so I have given up on that one and will use chrome from now on.

    This only happens on screen resolutions 1366x768 with the shockwave plugin.

    A thank-you to Vincent for answering but that was not a resolution.

    Thanks

  • Hi,


    Before going on, I would like to verify when did this issue happened? If this occurred recently, please perform a system restore to check the result.


    Meanwhile, you can try the following to check whether this is affected by the third party tool:


    Test the issue in Safe mode with networking. If it is normal, please boot into Clean Boot mode to narrow down the programs.


    Hope this helps
