CounterStrike:Source Resolution problem

before installing windows7 i was on xp and using the resolution Normal (4:3) on 800 x 600

now when i use 800 x 600 i get black strips up the side of the screen,

ive looked into this and found a few solutions with the flat panel scaling
although i dont have this in my nvidia control panel under display

i have the latest drivers for my card which is an 8600 GT

PLEASE HELP!!

When you are in video settings choose widescreen 16:10 (on the right side) click apply, and then choose resolution (on the left)...
Something like that...

You're on a wide screen monitor.. Running 4:3 ratio.. @ 800x600 resolution and complaining about black lines?

Only thing I could see is to run it 16:9
