Windows 7: Wallpaper looks over exposed

Wallpaper looks over exposed

Hello!

If you look at the screen shot below in that link you can see that my wall paper looks really over exposed. I have the original image open in the image viewer which looks perfectly normal. I have already checked all the video settings, i have had something similar before in XP when closing games (quake III mostly) and usually just opening the video controls will reset it back to normal, but this is not the case with this.

Any input would be awesome!

Thanks!

Do you maybe have a program called 'fences' installed? It looks like it from your screenshot. Uninstall it, and see if your resolution is back to normal.
