Thank you for the replies !
Before I posted my question I had run full scans with MalwareBytes, SAS and ESET. They all came back clean except for a few tracking cookies.
Right after I posted I restarted in safe mode and tried system restore. When I clicked on a calender date nothing would happen. The buttons ( date tabs) would not respond.
So I was unable to run system restore. I than started in normal mode and after it started up the resolutions had corrected themselves in IE-8 and Chrome. ???
I have no idea what caused the problem in the first place or why(how) it fixed itself.
The only issue left is the wallpaper picture. When I start up and my settings are loading the picture will flash for a few seconds and disappear. I then only have my icons on the desktop.
The picture is no longer in 'My Pictures' so I can not retrieve it there. Apparently it is still on the computer somewhere but I don't have any idea of what path to take to take to try and retrieve it.
It is a favorite picture of my wife's of our grand niece, so it is a sentimental type thing.
We have plenty of others though.
Thanks for the help !
PS: I have not tried last good configuration. I am scared I may mess things up again.
