    Icons appear off screen!!! (Ubuntu - Gnome)


    As you can see from the picture the icon on my desktop appears off the screen limits. This also happens when i insert a cd and when the system mounts it i can only see half the icon!!!
    Any ideas why this is happening!
    I have a clean Ubuntu linux installation.
    I use a Nvidia GeForce2 MX with the nvidia drivers at 1280 x 960 resolution on a 17" IIYAMA Vision Master Pro 410 monitor.
    I dont have any other problems with my graphics card nor my monitor.
    Thanks in advance!!!

    Well tried that but it just messes up my resolution! I get a huge desktop (must be something like 640 x 480). I have 1280 x 960 and if it cannot be fixed without changing resolutions then its fine. Its not that big problem anyway. It must be a bug.
    Thanks!!!
