Default too large a desktop

Too large everything. I had my computer updated which required a new mother board and CPU. Windows XP Pro was reinstalled (clean). The icons on my desktop respond right to adjusting the scree size, however, there is a lot of extra unused room around the icons. This problem carries over with my browser too. How can I adjust it to fit my screen as it did before? My second monitor (used to hole PhotoShop tools) seems to be fine. Thanks

AMD 3000+
768MB DDR400
Windows XP Pro
dual monitors

get in your display should have an option to determine the Icon size&spacing..if not?: I'm sure you can find it in your registry; search manually for Icon size and icon spacing or download Xteq X-setup (the best windows tweaking tool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
