As the question states. The problems is that my mouse has to be about a cm or 2 to the right of icons and anything that is clickable to highlight the item and to be able to click it. Not sure what is wrong?

The uploaded image is a screen shot showing the right part of my screen with a white vertical bar. No other program on my computer does this. Not sure what to do. It's not a big problem, it's more annoying than anything.
