Windows 7: Menu tab bug?

Menu tab bug?

I feel so helpless, I don't know whether this is a bug or what.
Whenever I open a menu tab (and it doesn't matter which program it's on) it appears to go "right-aligned" even if it's going out of the window. Usually, it would stay inside it's own window and would changed from left aligned or center, but clearly it's staying in it's right aligned position.
This also happens even when the window is maximised. I find this a problem because usually when you open a menu tab, all you need to do is go down with your mouse in order to navigate to the command you wanted, but with this, I have to move around and it gets quite irritating and confusing.
Is this anyway to fix this?

Please and Thank you.
