left part of screen is blank
The icons on the left side of my screen move about 2-3" to the right, and
that space is blank...If I restart the computer it's ok...but after awhile, I
come back to the computer and the left side is blank again.
I have 2 spyware programs and anti-virus and firewall....all of em are clean.

Laptop or desktop? Kind of monitor if desktop? If a desktop, does the
issue occur when you connect the machine to a different monitor?

Re: left part of screen is blank
Chuck,

Not exactly sure what you mean by 'blank' but this symptom occurs on my PC
occasionally due to my video card Display Settings acting up, temporarily
booting into a larger screen resolution and then fixing itself.

Also, if 'Windows Sidebar' starts without any 'Gadgets', the screen shifts a
few inches, though on my PC it shifts from the right side.

If Windows Sidebar is one of your startups, try to uncheck it in 'Run >
msconfig > Startup' and restart PC.
