Screen resolution changed after exiting game

Specs: Windows 7, E6750/2GB
I was playing Modern Warfare 2. The game resolution was set to something smaller than my desktop resolution. when I exited the resolution of windows became such that everything is now very small.

I played around with the screen resolution but eventually settled on the one "recommended" by windows 7.

I checked, and it IS the native res of my monitor. when i press "auto" on my monitor, Windows doesn't fill the whole screen and there is a black margin about 2" thick on the left side of my screen.

When I've played other games in the past (Counterstrike, Battlefield, etc.) the screen comes back to windows and then a second later flashes and returns to the normal resolution.

please i really need help. my icons and the taskbar have definitely shrunk. i don't want to just ctrl+mousewheel my icons back to normal because they don't all increase and it looks ugly. i need a real solution.
thank you in advance. i tried googling this but came up with nothing. it's a hard thing to search for.

btw: i have an HD5800 with the latest drivers and CCC.
