My screen looks almost bloated, like the scroll bar and task bar are still too large and nothing fits perfectly on the screen, it hangs out over to the left just slightly. It's useable, just obnoxious and it looks awful. The resolution is as high as it will go and my icons are on small. Any suggestions?

If it's a desktop, see if you can adjust your monitor using its controls. Most monitors have an auto-fit feature that will center the desktop image and make it fill the screen just so without cutting off the edges.

I have the same problem on my Toshiba A210, having taken the laptop to the repairer (I had Vista Anti-Virus 2012 virus on it) Ithen got it back with Windows 7 but the screen was too wide-looking and slightly fuzzy. Any recommendations?
