Sites and links suddenly open small window in IE

This just started happening today all by itself. If I click on a site or link using IE, the window opens small and I have to maximize to make it full screen.

I'm running XP Pro. I haven't been changing any settings (unless I hit something by accident)

What's causing this?

BTW, I tried to do a search but could not get anything to come up that covers this.

Close all IE windows. Open one, manually maximize it by dragging at corners to resize. Don't use maximize button. Close IE window.

Should be ok now.

You don't happen to have any Spyware/Adware installed. Here at the office I see that occur when one of those are installed.

Do you have a Spware program checker?
