Unnecessary spacing on desktop icons
I've had this problem before, except in XP. Basically, I am having issues putting my icons right above my task bar, there is a bit of a gap where it won't let me put my icons. Just because I know I'll be asked, here's my icon spacing:
Icon Spacing (Horizontal): 43
Icon Spacing (Vertical): 43
Align Icons to Grid: On (I like to have them space out correctly, other than me trying to do it manually)
If I disable aligning the icons to grid it allows me to move icons into the space, however it's much harder to align them correctly. I'm not sure why this has happened, I turned on my computer one day and all the icons were messed up and I was no longer able to organize them the way I like. Here is a picture of what I'm talking about, you can see the space I can't put icons in is bordered with red.
If anybody has any suggestions on how to fix this, it would be grateful. I did a quick search and wasn't able to find anything.

I figured out at least a temporary fix. This program called dual monitor:
Download Dual Monitor Taskbar from SourceForge.net
It makes a second taskbar so that there is on on each monitor. I don't know how they did it, but somehow it fools the system into thinking the 2nd monitor is the first. My icons are no longer spaced weird on the right monitor, although now theres a taskbar on the left.
Funny thing is, deleting the "new" taskbar on the left monitor makes the icons on the right monitor go weird again.
