Displaying zoom list-Using Windows display settings

I recently had to use system restore.  :(  Prior to that, I used to have a zoom list (by percentages) on the lower right corner of my screen.  Now it is gone.  I have gone to tools=internet options=advanced to click the  "use windows display settings on
web page controls" as instructed by "help" but the option is not there.   I have also right clicked on the to bar to customize it but the zoom list is not there either.
 How can I turn my zoom list back on?

     How to perform a repair installation of Windows XP if a later version of Internet Explorer is installed


Per the above, you should have uninstalled IE7
before doing the Repair Install. Since you didn't, Windows (and IE) is in a "confused state" and your only recourse now is a "clean install."

You will want to print these instructions for offline reference

Back-up any personal data then do a format & clean install of Windows.  Please note that another Repair Install (AKA in-place upgrade) will NOT fix this!

After the clean install, you'll have the equivalent of a "new computer" so take care of everything on the following page before otherwise connecting the machine to the internet or a network and before using a USB key that isn't brand-new or hasn't been freshly
     5 steps to help protect your new computer before you go online

HOW TO get a computer running WinXP SP1(a) or SP2 fully patched (after a clean install)

TIP: If your computer came with an anti-virus free-trial preinstalled, it will be reinstalled (but invalid) after doing the clean install.
You must uninstall the free trial, download/run the appropriate removal tool (if necessary; see below), and reboot
before you install a replacement anti-virus application.

Norton Removal Tool

McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool (only do Steps #1 and #2)

NB: If a Norton or McAfee free-trial is preinstalled and you want to install another application by the same provider (e.g., Norton 360; McAfee VirusScan Plus), you MUST uninstall the free-trial & run the removal tool before installing a new application from
the same provider.

Good luck.
Sorry I didn't have better news for you.

Use the Sfc tool to repair - Displaying zoom list-Using Windows display settings

sfc is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. This article describes how to run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to scan your system files and to repair missing or corrupted system files. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. For instance, some Windows functions may not work, or Windows may crash.

If You are Running Windows 8 or Windows 8.1

  • Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, follow these steps:
  • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search. Or, if you are using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, and then click Search. Type Command Prompt in the Search box, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

For Windows 10, Windows 7, or Windows Vista

  • To do this, click Start, type Command Prompt or cmd in the Search box, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or press Allow.
  • At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
  • sfc /scannow
  • The sfc /scannow command will scan all protected system files, and replace corrupted files with a cached copy that is located in a compressed folder at %WinDir%\System32\dllcache.
  • The %WinDir% placeholder represents the Windows operating system folder. For example, C:\Windows.
  • Attention please: Don't close this Command Prompt window until the verification is 100% complete. The scan results will be shown after this process is finished.
After the process is finished, you may receive one of the following messages:
  • Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.
  • To resolve this problem, perform the System File Checker scan in safe mode, and make sure that the PendingDeletes and PendingRenames folders exist under %WinDir%\WinSxS\Temp.

Reinstall your Windows

When you have tried the above methods but can't seem to fix your problem, you can reinstall your Operating System and install a "clean" copy of Windows onto your computer again. But this should be the last method to fix your error, as this will completely erase everything on your hard disk and it will take you a lot of time to reinstall all your software back to your system. It's very important for you to back up all files, pictures and personal information before you do that.
