    mac pro 1st gen
    running os 10.5.8

    start up disk is macintosh hd

    i dont have a clue what happened, now whenever i reboot the desktop screen loads up icons and then the desktop gets about an inch bigger and offset, when i move my mouse the entire desktop moves along with it about an inch in each direction

    any ideas?

    thanks
