How to restore previous IE Window Position?

I got this link in an e-mail that has a flash animation of a person jumping up and down and whatnot, and it also changes the position of the window, moving left and right. It wasn't that amusing, but I had my window maximized and Windows won't let me move it back to it's previous position. I can't figure out how to get it back to normal maximized positon. I'm running Windows 95 with IE 5.5. Help?

I viewed the source and saw that it was a javascript code that was effecting this, here it was I saw:

Code:
function moveleft(){
parent.moveBy(-3,0)
}
function moveleft1(){
parent.moveBy(-1,0)
}
function moveleft2(){
parent.moveBy(-4,0)
}
function moveleft3(){
for (x=7;x>=0;x--)
{
parent.moveBy(-x,0)
}
}


function moveup(){
for (x=6;x>=0;x--)
{
parent.moveBy(0,-x)
}
}
function moveup1(){
for (x=5;x>=0;x--)
{
parent.moveBy(-3,-x)
}
}


function movedown(){
parent.moveBy(0,3)
}
function movedown2(){
for (x=6;x>=0;x--)
{
parent.moveBy(0,x)
}
}
function movedown3(){
for (x=8;x>=0;x--)
{
parent.moveBy(0,x)
}
}
function movedown4(){
for (x=8;x>=0;x--)
{
parent.moveBy(5,x)
}
}
function movedown5(){
parent.moveBy(0,1)
}


function moveright(){
for (x=9;x>=0;x--)
{
parent.moveBy(x,0)
}
}
function moveright1(){
parent.moveBy(1,0)
}
function moveright2(){
parent.moveBy(3,0)
}
function moveright3(){
for (x=3;x>=0;x--)
{
parent.moveBy(x,0)
}
}
TIA.

Have you tried the "increase your screen resolution" trick? You may be able to get ahold of the control box since IE will be smaller relative to the size of the screen. Maybe.

Hey! That did it! (Not that I doubted you. ) Thanks...I probably never would have gotten that.
