lol doubt its a virus sounds like someone tinkered with ur text size settings, if ur on any version of IE click view button up top then go to text size and make it medium or whatever suites u, and for netscape and other browsers its probably similar fool around with it if u dont have IE

is it at all possible that you accidently used the wheel on mouse while holding the cntrl key? sounds kind of obvious, but stranger things have happened... This will crank the text size (in case you don't know)

Its unlikeley to be a trojan but its worth noting that virus scanners dont detect all trojans to be 100% use a trojan scanner like the cleaner.
