    Whenever I move my mouse, all my windows move up and down at the same time. All my icons have increased 2x in size. Basically, I can't even view my whole desktop at once, I have to move my mouse all overthe screen to move it up and down.

    PS. Apple Support Sucks. I wait 30 minutes for them to hang up on me.

    Hold control, and scroll downwards :)

    It looks like you accidentally zoomed in, one of the cool features of OSX if you use it right...

    No, thats not it.

    Upon startup, my computer is fine.

    Then all of a sudden, my sidebar will become much larger but everything else stays the same.

    I really do think it sounds like OSX's zooming feature. Check in System Preferences to see that zooming is turned off in the Universal Access pane.
