Default nView Clone No Desktop

i'm using winXP service pack 2, with Nvidia MMX 440 8x AGP card with one monitor.
i just bought a video cable to go from the video card to my Tv, plugged it in and nothing happened so then i decided to mess with the nView settings.
Massive Mistake.
I went into 'clone mode' and picked 'analog to TV' and then i was screwed!!
my desktop picture now shows and i cannot see the icons or the XP start menu.
it all appears to be to the left of my monitor and i have tried so much but cannot get the fatal error reversed. windows starts fine when i reboot, but i just can't see my original desktop, only the picture appears as i'm assuming it was 'cloned' the mouse is even present, allowing me to right click, create folders and so forth. there is a nView setting that appears when i right click and there are two options 1) TV or 2) analog. i have clicked on both many times but nothing changes.

is there an easy way out of this?
man, i feel super stupid!!! please help me????

thanks in advance

go into safe mode(press and hold f8 on start up).this should enable you to view everything normally(albeit low res).change your settings back to default,or use system restore.
hope this helps
