Strange game - screen problem

So I was gaming Quake 4, and I had to ctrl + alt + del to close an application. But the windows was "minimized" or rather, made smaller, and now the game looks like this:

I can right click the Quake 4 short cut and pick "run maximized" but it just maximizes the Quake 4 window! It doesn't "open" the window "fully". I tried uninstalling, reinstalling (and updating) but it didn't remove the problem.

Any ideas??

There should be an in-game option to run/not run in a window. Chances are that the uninstaller saved your settings when you uninstalled, so the setting probably didn't get reverted to default.
