Glitch...or Is My Computer Dying?

    Is anyone else having issues with their profile page or the their Hubs?

    Every profile page I visit is centered on the page, the fonts are huge & they're completed out of alignment. Same thing with individual Hubs. And there's no advertising at all.

    Been this way since mid-afternoon yesterday. I've ran scans & everything comes up clear.

    So...is it a Hub glitch or is my computer dying?

      Try a different browser. If your using Internet Explorer, try Firefox, and vice versa. It could be that your browser is just bad.

      If you're on ADSL/broadband/modem, try turning off the modem, wait 30 secs, and turn on again.
      Also try below:
      Have you checked whether you zoomed in on the page by mistake?
      <Ctrl><minus> in Firefox to adjust. For other browsers, try checking the view menu.

      I don't know if this is what happened to you or not, but sometimes if I am signed on with my phone and then go to my computer this happens, like hubpages gets confused and tries giving me the mobile browser, I just refresh and usually it goes away..

    Another thing you might try is to take a look at the font size settings on your computer. 

    First click on 'Page' in your IE browser, then look down the drop-down menu and adjust first the text size, and then the zoom settings.

    You may also want to run a virus scan (after having cleared cookies and history.)  AVG offer very good free anti-virus software, which I've used for years and never once had a virus.

    I was using IE yesterday and am using Firefox today - haven't noticed anything odd here.  Hope you get the problem resolved! smile

    Thanks to everyone. Here's the deal.

    I got a wicked virus called "My Security Engine" - it popped up yesterday with an icon that mimics Microsoft's. It was warning me of a servious worm/bug & to click on it to resolve the issue. Thinking it was a legit function of Microsoft, I did so.

    BUT, thankfully, when it went to a page requiring me to purchase a product, I stopped. It is malicious spyware that my McAfee missed.

    I am presently running a STOPzilla scan. Hopefully that'll identify it & kill it dead.

    I'm also going to try Firefox's browser.
