This is continuing. For instance, when using excel on the main monitor the windows dock to the right in a narrow strip. Not only that, but the menus dock over there too!

setup of monitors is that the main one is on the left and the secondary monitor is on the right.

I did disable the aero snap feature as described here:
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-7/disable-the-mouse-drag-window-arranging-feature-in-windows-7/

but it didn't help.

The monitors are different sizes, the left (main one is a little taller).

Turns out the program Trillian was on the main monitor and it was set to dock left. This pushed everything else to the right. Thanks a trillion! :)
