Palette Size

On my computer at work, the size of the Basic Math Input palette is too 
small. The contents of the palette are cut off on the right and at the 
bottom, making some of the items on the palette inaccessible. I think it 
was OK when I first installed Mathematica 6, but got messed up somehow 
when I was recently fooling around with the Windows XP Accessibility 
Options (was troubleshooting an issue a colleague was having). I tried 
putting all my Windows settings (font size etc.) back the way they were 
before, but this (or some other unintentional change) has altered the 
palette size, and I simply cannot resize it.

I looked at the Basic Math Input WindowSize (under Window Properties) in 
the Option Inspector, on the offending computer in my office, on the 
instructor's computer in a classroom where I teach, and on my home PC 
(all of these  running Mathematica 6.0.1 on Windows XP). The palette's 
WindowSize on the offending computer in my office is set to {77,381}. In 
the classroom it is set to {Fit,Fit}, and my home PC it is set to 
{90,455} (the latter computer is set to use Windows XP large fonts, same 
as my office PC). I have tried changing the WindowSize in my office to 
{Fit,Fit}, {Automatic,Automatic}, {90,455}, and various other things, 
but the Option Inspector does not allow any change that I make, and 
immediately replaces whatever I put in but in with the too small 
{77,381}. Is there somewhere else I need to change it?
