Default suspected virus attack

There is this problem with one of my computers in my school which has been running with an outdated antivirus.

Here is the problem: The display(pictures of icon, wording or any form of images) on the computer screen appear to be out of its original shape, shrinking in sizes to an extend where they are no longer readable. The degree of sharpness of the screen display has dropped. The words also overlaps due to the shrinking effect and hence illegible. The problem shouldn't lie with the display properties since only the administrator is capable of making changes so everything remains in its default setting. It could probably be a virus attack. How can i track the source and rectify the problem?

Default Re: suspected virus attack

Hold the control button, and use the scroll wheel to adjust the size. That seems like the most obvious cause to me. let me know if that didnt fix it.
