Windows 7: Win 7 Starter Gateway LT40 How do I get the panel fit option to stay

Win 7 Starter Gateway LT40 How do I get the panel fit option to stay

I right clicked the desktop hovered over graphics options, then hovered over panel fit and tried to select Maintain Aspect Ratio. This immediately disappears but does nothing. Going back in shows the setting is still on Scale Full Screen.

Clicking Graphics Properties to open the full menu where the setting is allows you to click the Maintain Aspect Ratio setting then Apply then asks you if you want to keep the setting so you click ok then ok again to close the window but when you go look at the settings it's once again at Scale Full Screen.

It's needed because some upgrade wizards open larger than the window and you can't get to the next or cancel buttons. Enter works, but I got this for my mom who is 72 and she won't be able to figure out a workaround and I worry that she'll get stuck with all these windows up then just give up and not use the netbook until I come home again in 6 months.. not ideal.

Thank you for your help!! Oh and can i just ad that it is BS that you can't change the desktop picture in 7 Starter? LAME.
