Arrow quick dual monitor question

Ive got my dual monitors set up on my 6600GT and they work np. im running them in "dual" so i can have them on different resolutions becuase i only want to use my 15" one for msn and foobar/winamp which i am doin np. But my question comes when i try to play a game. It opens on my main monitor and the 2nd one looks like its been dragged to the right and i cant switch between them anymore. can i not just have the game on the main on and talk to ppl on msn on the 2nd one?

thanks

I have the same problem, i believe it to be coding with the game. You can get around this by running the game in a window though.
