Desktop Icons wierdly bigger

Hey =)

I was looking for a Desktop Extender today and after installing it, I noticed that my desktop icons got bigger, not the icon size, but the 'background space' they occupy(see the image), I've already searched the program I used(VirtualWin) to extend and I found nothing on changing icons, I dont know if this happened before or after I installed, but I only noticed it after..

Things I've tried:
(Some are stupid I know, but I tried anything I could remember to change the desktop)
Auto Arranging Icons
Changing Icon Size(thru the right-click menu and by holding CTRL + Mouse Wheel)
Changing Background
Restarting
Uninstalling VirtualWin and restarting
Changing Resolution
Change DPI


Any ideas on how to turn them back to their original size?
Much Appreciated
Quetzalma
