    Hi all--I'm having trouble with my home computer when I try to go to Hubpages--it looks enlarged with big icons and a strange format with only b&w.  I can sign on but not really view content well.  This has happened off and on for several months but now it has been permanent for over 2 weeks.  On my work computer everything is fine. I'm not seeing anyone else talking about this, so I assume it is a problem with my computer which seems to work fine on all other websites.  Any ideas of how I can fix this?  I've deleted cookies and turned off my ad blocker and a lot of other apps.  I've tried Firefox and also Chrome.  Any ideas?   (I'm not a new hubber--I've been active on the site for 8 years or so)

      Do you have McAfee? If so, see if you can add HubPages to a whitelist or something. I don't have it so I can't be specific about what you need to do.

        I had McAfee but removed it from my computer.  It was responsible but I did not know about the possibility of adding McAfee to a 'white paper'!  If you discover how to do this and it fixes your problem, would you mind enlarging on how I could too please as I am not very happy about using the free AVG program?

          A quick Google search found this:

 … 9B7A3.html

          That's quite old, but there are other resources - just search McAfee website whitelist.

    That is the low-bandwidth/plain text version fo the site.  Other people have found McAfee was responsive for switching you to it.

    Might be a browser zoom issue. Try Ctrl+0 (zero) to reset to default.

    Thank you.  I will wait to see if it works for anyone else as I have already had a refund from McAfee.
