Icons & everything is very large.

Specs: Windows XP
I can't move the tab for resolution size. I had an update for Itunes, and then everything got real big. I am not able to move the tab for the resolution size. Also, I am not able to restore my computer to an earlier date. After the download from Itunes, it also wants to find some kind of hardware that I didn't install.

First thing to try is a System Restore to a date before this happened.

crestwood, SWAG, I suspect you've been infected by a nasty (virus, worm/trojan, etc.?). Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Malware Bytes (Google for location) seems to be the preferred remover, but I've run into a few it couldn't handle. Superantispyware seems able to handle all comers. (Info only. I’m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:

among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update any cleaner prior to running. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
Disable 'restore' after cleaning and run it again (to remove any nasties living there, restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back should you later ‘restore’.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try. I'm pretty paranoid.
