Hello, i posted it at Community Help with a lot views and no solving, thats why i am posting here:

" Guys i need a help.

I was flying and went to move and expand the chat box, in an online room.
the chat box became locked in the 9th chatline, i can expand to the left and to the right but cant restore the chatbox to upper position and it avoid me to see the chat in game.......... i tried alot of things, pasting the backupped conf.ini, reinstalling the game and nothing worked to get back to default situation........os is the unfortuned VISTA.

I think I need to see a picture of this to give some advice on how to fix it. Reinstalling the game seems a bit over the top to fix something like this unless it truly is stuck in a position. Usually thats not the case but...can we see a picture?

Open conf.ini with notepad, and check you have the following:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">


If it's not there or has other values, paste the above in. These are the default chat window dimensions.
make sure to use save and not save as...

[EDIT] Just looked up your posting in the help forum... Make sure Vista really writes the conf.ini - it is very picky to writing ini files under c:/Program Files/

You will need to be logged in as Administrator and have all privileges. Shutting down the blasted UAC altogether could help too - see link in my sig on howto.

The more I see/hear about problems in Vista, the more I really think Bill Gates is the Anti-Christ.
