    I don't know when this started or how (else I'd have fixed it) but recently
    my wallpaper settings been acting weird. No matter what I do, even when I
    select strech/fit-to-screen, the wallpaper is "pushed" slightly off-screen
    leaving a large bar of empty space. Here's a picture of the said problem:
    So does anyone know why this is happening and if there's a way to fix it or

    Have a look at the HKEY_Current User\Control Panel\Desktop settings i
    regedit -- you'll probably find that the WallpaperOriginX an
    WallpaperOriginY keys have been changed. Set 'em both back to 0 and se
    what happens..

  5. My guess is the "y" should be "why".

    Look around that forum you are using. MANY of the posts quote material
    being replied to.

    That forum leeches most of its posts from Microsoft servers and mingles
    them with posts from forum users, so most of what you see there comes from
    the outside. "Outsiders" are listed as "guest" and/or our number of posts
    are "n/a".

    "Outsiders" don't see what you see because we use a different method to
    read/reply to posts - and it's NORMAL for a person to quote material being
    replied to out here in the real Usenet world.
