Template Problems

Hello

I recently upgraded my forum at www.computalk.net from vBulletin 3.6.8 to 3.6.9

Before the upgrade, it displayed perfectly on a 1024x768 monitor without the need for a horizontal scrollbar at the bottom.

After I upgraded (I think the upgrade caused it, it happened around the same time and I made no other changes) the forum it now has a bottom scrollbar when using 1024x768. So the forum is a little bit too large for the screen which isn't good.

Is there a way I can fix this?

Also, during the upgrade it said this:

The templates shown on this page have been updated in the default template set since you customized them.

It may be necessary for you to revert the custom templates, or otherwise check that they fully support vBulletin 3.6.9. If you do not do this, some sections of vBulletin may not function! Please see the release announcements at the vBulletin.com Forums for more information.
And it has a list of templates with the option to edit, view history and revert each one:

Looking thru the source code i dont see anything that sticks out as a big coding issue, but i do see that the columns for forum, last post, threads & post have hard coded width settings, the last post column is set to width="250"

Thanks so much for your help. However, I am no good with all this coding and CSS stuff, how would I be able to fix this?

Would I just lower the width of the columns or do I need to make them fluid (if so how do I do this)?

Thanks
Calum
