    new 15.7 catalyst broken


      i downloaded the new catalyst software update and upon resetting my computer my start bar and proportions of my monitor got all messed up....... i had to find a backdoor fix by resetting the scaling bu it still looks incredibly weird because the scaling is not the proper size of the monitor....... i also read online i am not the only one this has happened to
