Default desktop

Sorry but i couldnt find a section for this question..

Anyway the problem is when i restart my computer and open up programs that take up the screen(like counter-strike) and when i close out of it and go back to my desktop half of the desktop background is off my moniter.. i did properties>desktop>postion>center but it doesnt do anything, i can change it back to center with the little buttons on the bottom of the moniter but once i go into CS and back out of it, my desktop background goes back to half of it off the moniter.

It wasn't doing this yesterday..

any help would be appreciated

What type of Videocard, Monitor and operating system are you using?

When asking for help, you should include a few important system hardware/software profiles so we can help you better.
