I believe I have Windows XP. The computer crashed and someone got it going again for me but lost most everything. When I turn on the computer, everthing looks stretched out. The internet page does not fill up the whole screen. Pictures and faces and icons look thin and stretched out. I can no longer get my Printmaster 10 (I know that it's old) to load on this computer. It is just a black square. I can't get the Microsoft Excel to open anything Excel, though I can type and print in Microsoft Word. I am not real computer saavy, but I do use one every day.

Welcome to TSG!!

It sounds like the video display properties are set incorrectly. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and select Properties. Click the Settings tab and let us know what the "Screen Resolution" is. I suspect you will want something like 1024x768.

You can change that to 1024x768, unless you've got a wide-screen monitor. That should help.
