    When XP starts up, the 'window' (i.e. desktop+taskbar) fits the monitor as one would expect. After a while ~1 or more hours the 'windows expands to the right, hiding the scrollbar of a maximised program, and the date/time in the taskbar. Sometimes This resolves itself sometimes, but usually I have to reboot to restore things. I have tried using control panel>display, and logging out&in to no avail.

    (My monitor is 24" 1900x1080 with Nvidia builtin graphics on motherboard)

    Hi have you set the screen resolution, to a lower level?
    Check under Advanced>monitor>change the refresh rate and see if that helps.
    Also under Troubleshooting>adjust the Hardware Acceleration - and see what difference that makes.
