Fixed size forms seem to be truncated on dual screen PC

My PC has two screens attached and uses the standard windows software to handle them.
I have a bit of a problem with forms being truncated.
For instance I can't run the standard calculator app in scientific mode because the right hand side of the form is cut off.
I've noticed this in a few apps. I suspect it's the dual display setup causing the problem.

You could try installing a different monitor in your Display Settings. I guess the dual display is fooling it, as you suggest. The graphics adaptor thinks it's writing to a screen with a higher resolution.
