    My computer is acting werid on me. It keeps changing the text size. I normally have it set to medium, but today i have noticed it being either extra big or extra small, and when i check the size in the view menu, sure enough it keeps changing on me. Any Idea whats causing it?

    Why... probably because you have not been nice to it! It is rebelling! Just give it some kind words... Turn it off to rest for a bit. Show some respect and compassion. And... Do not forget to say I AM SORRY.

    If that does not work, threaten to format it and it will jump in line quickly!

    I know I have a mouse with a center scroll button and somtimes if I hit alt or crtl or something and spin the wheel it changes the text size. I have no idea how I do it, it just happens

    If your mouse is doing it, make sure that you have the correct driver for the mouse installed. Sometime if you have the wrong driver installed then the mouse cn do some funky things. Sometimes the Windows does not pick up the correct driver. Rare that this happens, but I have seen it happen on occasions. Ensure to install the driver that came with the mouse. Also ensure that it is for your OS as well. If not, just go to the mouse manufacturers site and download the correct one.

    my bf(who knows sooo much more than me when it comes to computers) told me that it is just loose electrial signals hitting the reciever. It doesnt do it too much, maybe something weird once every 4 hrs of use.

    Just try to go into your options, where ever it could be, and then change them, weather it is your aol , or just your regular OS fonts. C:/Control Panel/fonts
