Windows 7: Dropdown sub-lists keep going left :(

Dropdown sub-lists keep going left :(

This is very annoying....
While there is plenty of room to the right, most sub-lists in my dropdown menus keep placing themselves to the left.
And that in a lot of programs where I had no such problem in XP.
Is there a way to change their behavior ????

OK, here's what I mean.
This is Roboform and I was gonna ask them but then I noticed this happening in a lot of other places (photoshop, outlook... grr... a lot).
I have the main drop-down list and then a secondary one which opens (the one I called "sub-list"). This sub-list should open to the RIGHT of my selection (where I have put the red arrow)... but it goes to the left...
Now I go to "manage attachments" and see if I can put in this snip....

Have you tried what stormy13 posted above?

Just noticed that it is a software that you are using - does it have anything in its Options that would allow you to customise the list display?
