    Can any one please help me. I have had my PC reformatted with XP/Sp2 and all
    the updates etc.

    1. Now by the clock (bottom right) it has the correct time (and hidden date)
    but straight underneath the time I have the day eg 07.20 and underneath
    I seem to be going round in circles here. I just want to have the Time only
    showing. I have looked in Control Panel>Date and Time and also Regional
    Languages, but I seem to be getting no where.

    2 When in Internet Explorer 6 I have changed the View>Text Size to a
    suitable size (medium); but when I type in say the google search box, the
    text I type comes out very small. Is there anyway to change the font size

    Can anyone assist please

    2. On any clear area of your desktop,click once, then right click,
    Properties / Appearance, set font (at bottom of pane.) May not work
    well if Classic Style is chosen.

    1a. simply unlock by right click and uncheck Lock the taskbar! Voila!

    1b. It may only be necessary to change the appearance from Windows XP
    Style to Windows Classic Style, then back again. I did this without
    changing anything on the taskbar and the time appeared without the date.

    Is this a MS/SP2 CD or a custom branded recovery disk. If it's the 2nd
    it may have been modified install by the supplier.
    If you find out what it was, it would be handy to know. The only way I
    have seen anyhting like that is using a 3rd party taskbar utility.
    Time only (12/24hr) seems to have always been the default, with 12/24
    format changes with regional settings.
    View > Text Size, applies to the display fonts on the webpage, haven't
    seen it apply to what you type in.

    Check Tools / Internet Options / General
    Fonts and the Accessibility options.

    I have sorted it now see above.
    It was the Standard XP (Official )Home Edition (no SP1 on it) and the
    Official SP2 cd from Microsoft
