Default windows guest account has some odd behaviours

I'm stuck on something.

I can login to Windows using my main account or a guest account. The guest account has some peculiarities.

In the bottom right corner there's an arrow to see what's in the system tray. but for some reason when I click that it takes up half the screen. pic attached.

Secondly, I have a program called dimscreen that I run in the evening to make my screen a bit dimmer. In my main account when I run that it appears in the system tray, and I can then adjust the brightness there. In this account it's not showing up there at all, so I have no control over it. The only way to stop running it is to goto task manager and terminate it there.

How do I fix this?
