Windows 7: Win7 causing apps to resize/shift when switching inputs

Win7 causing apps to resize/shift when switching inputs

I have a hdmi switcher from monoprice that I use to switch input between my pc and my ps3. I have a dell 2407 monitor.

I just recently upgraded to win 7 from vista, but I noticed something. when I switch to ps3 and back to pc via the switcher, my app windows get re-sized, as if the resolution changed and changed back.

For example, firefox and my AIM buddy list would shift to the left and get re-sized.

This didn't happen in vista, all my programs stayed in place.

Anyone know how to fix this? I have the monitor drivers installed
