Go to a blank spot on the toolbar click and hold the left mouse button. Drag the toolbar to the bottom of the screen and release. That should resolve the issue. :)

You mean the whole desktop?
In other words it is flipped a quarter turn or just pushed to the side?

In either case the first suggestion I would give is to try the on screen monitor controls and see if they will straighten the picture out. If not there then try going into the video properties by right clicking on the desktop and then click properties.
I suspect the issue is with the monitor itself and the onscreen controls.

Try pressing Ctrl+Alt+Up when on the desktop.
If this doesn't work right click the Desktop, there should be a NVIDIA/Intel/ATI or similar "properties" window at where you can reset the screen orientation.
