I have a netbook with windows 7 and a max. resolution of 1024x600. This resolution is usually insufficent to display correctly my programs. Do you know of any type of software to zoom out the screen, use unsupported resolutions, or to create 'virtual' graphics dysplay so i can get a zoom out effect on mi monitor? Thank you.

You could try a "scrollable desktop" or a "virtual desktop" program for example SDesk, GiMeSpace or Virtual Dimension

See Dexpot (Free of charge for private use) :

Dexpot turns your monitor into up to 20. Dexpot creates additional workspaces you can quickly switch between. Take, for example, Desktop 1 to listen to your favourite music, surf the web on Desktop 2, use Desktop 3 to handle your daily word processing or switch to Desktop 4 for a game of Solitaire.
