Hi everyone. I've had this problem twice now, where a program's controls seem to be cut-off on the display. Right now I have the problem with USB Safeguard. This is what mine looks like: Posted Image

when it's supposed to look like this:

Playing with the "compatibility" under its "properties" doesn't help. The only time it works is when I start windows 7 in Safe Mode, THEN it shows properly. Same with the other program I had this issue with. USB Safeguard is a pretty popular program and it seems like no one else on the web is having this problem. Of coarse I can't keep Restarting the computers that I run this on in Safe Mode just for it to work. Does anyone else have this problem with windows 7? Thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

I am just curious what happens if you changed your screen resolution to 800x600 pixels long enough to see if this corrects the orientation of the fields.

Maybe you do not need to lower it that much, but try a setting lower than the one your using now, perhaps this software is picky, being that it is corrected in safe mode tells me it has something to do with your video resolution settings.
