For awhile now I have an issue with certain system windows being absolutely huge!

For example with certain programmes, if I click the print button, the window that pops up is way bigger then my screen, and as such I cannot modify the printer settings. I have the same issue occur when I try to install applications (various), uninstall or with general use of a programme which has system windows pop up to change settings, such as PSP.

I contacted Microsoft who says its a Toshiba issue, Toshiba tells me its Microsofts issue, but no one seems to have ever seen this before. I would attach some screenshots but no way to do this here so check out 2 images I uploaded to picasa, both are prinscreens of complete desktop, one with the loading window of installation the seconds of the 1st page/window on installer:

I'm using 1280x800

As you can see from the screen captures, everything else is fine is size, the issue seems to be only with loading pop-ups or things to change settings like printer pop-up

When I open MS office apps, explorer, outlook all those are fine
