It started at least 1 week ago. I have AMD radeon 7770 HD. I hadnt had this problem before but its getting annoying if i want to stream. My monitor resolution is native 1360x768, but when I play on 4:3 it always stretches and I tried maintain aspect ratio, but i had to change my native resolution on catalyst.

The shift of icons and windows on the other screen is caused by Windows.

As for the aspect ratio, all I can say is try setting your desktop resolution to the game resolution and enabling aspect ratio preservation there.  Then you can change it back to native.

Or have your monitor do the scaling, and set that to preserve aspect ratio.

If your icons aren't moving back properly, look for a utility to save and restore their positions.  I've been using a 64-bit port of Richter's Desktop Icon Position Saver for a while now, though I had to modify and rebuild it to get it working properly.
