if you look at this site on a normal 17inc monitor it looks great, if you look at it on a 15 inc or a wide screen the site looks crap, now the boss wants it looking the same on different size monitors.
can any one help maybe a css code or to to fix the whole site

yours

You may like to load antivir on your pc and have a look at your site also, no doubt a false positive but....

First; welcome to WebmasterWorld, techsupport. We don't allow URLs to be posted so I suggest you remove those two.

And yes; there is a virus installation attempt on that page, and the code itself is fairly awful. I suggest you start from scratch and draw it out logically using DIV elements and get rid of the tables which are not sizing or flowing properly.

For screen width-sensitivity; implement max-width and have internal widths on a percentage basis. By the way; why are there page of blank lines before you even start your code? Do you realise that nothing at all can come before your <!DOCTYPE... not even blank lines?

div tags are not a magic ingredient. Remove that table entirely and replace it with more and correct div tags.

Your poor code is the only reason that your site is not resizing properly which is why I am urging you to delete it and start from scratch; properly laying out the structure. You will learn from it :)

Get together with your boss and look at well-established web sites with different monitor sizes and resolutions and see that they don't look "the same."

Good idea - and note that the screen resolution (and size of the browser window in pixels) is the issue here. The physical size of the monitor is irrelevant. But you can learn a lot by loading one of the well established websites and resizing the window.
