Please help on my screen all the images have moved anti clockwise.
The taskbar now is on the right hand side of the screen and all the
functions of the mouse are also moved round aswell to go up and down I have
to move mouse left and right. My son has pressed a few keys and he cant
remember what he pressed.
I am running XP.
Please help with this problem as I cant work to long on computer as I get
pain in the neck :-)

This hardly qualifies as "all functions not working"! Go to the Display
applet in Control Panel. On the Settings tab, click on the Advanced
button and look for information about your video adapter. Somewhere in
there will be a setting for Rotation. This is what you want to change.
If you have an Nvidia video card, it may have its own Control Panel
applet which you can use.

You might also want to try some key combinations such as
Ctrl-Alt-ArrowKey.

Excellent, glad you got it sorted. Thanks for taking the time to let me
know.
