    IE6 Window Resize Prob HELP !!

    Hi all having a big prob. Need to reset the default new window size in IE - went on a site yesterday and its gone wonky ie:-



    Done the web setting reset via the IE setting screen and even :-

    "Sometimes Internet Explorer 5 or later "decides" to remember the wrong size for a new window. Whatever you do, you can't seem to get it to remember a normal size.

    You can fix this:

    Close all instances of Internet Explorer.

    Go to the "Start menu" and choose "Run" Type --- regedit and press enter or click "OK".


    Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main
    Delete the value Window_Placement
    Exit the Registry Editor."

    Still not joy.

    Idealy I'd like to do a profile reset of some kind but not sure how.

    Any help would be apprciated before I scream !

    TIA Terran

    PS XP SP1 Pro

    Sussed - close all windows, open new window from the main ie icon. ( Lets call that Win A ) right click and do new window on a link ( lets call this one Win B ) to create a New window ( lets call this one Win C ). Close Win A, then Win C and then Win B. Re open IE and test by right click new window and sussed.

    Phew - Bet that ones not in the MS Knowllage Base lol

    It's a lot easier than that.
    Close all IE windows.
    Open 1.
    resize it to what you want.
    Close it.

    You'd think so... tried this as normal - didn't work... very strange.
