Windows 7: My screen resolution got messed up.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
My screen resolution got messed up.

So today, (9/9/2011) I noticed my Catalyst Control Center had an update from my version 6 to version 8. So I clicked install and all of a sudden my screen resolution get messed up. Now when I switch to my default resolution 1920x1080, my taskbar gets covered 80%. Now I'm using 1680x1050; my taskbar isn't covered now but when I start up the browser, I can't see the scroll bar on the right and the top part is covered a little now. Can anyone help?

P.S.- My monitor now reads Generic Non-PnP Monitor. It didn't say this before the update.
