Default How to rest the display settings?

The idiot that was using this computer screwed all the display setting on this computer, so there are icons that are big, and the internet browser won't display all the colors from the website.

Is there a was that i can just reset everything back to normal?

Thanks.

Edit: Forgot to say im on XP Pro
