This tidbit is also useful when using PowerPoint to make a presentation.
The issue that arises is that Windows 7's really cool Aero scheme will interfere with your dual screen presentation.
Right click on the program's shortcut for your software (in my scenario, that is, oddly enough, Visionary 8) and choose Properties.
Now choose the Compatibility tab.
Check the box for Disable desktop composition.
Choose OK to close this window.
Now whenever you launch this software, Windows 7 will first switch to the Basic color scheme. When you close the program, Windows 7 will revert to the "really cool" Aero scheme.
Now your presentation should look like you want it to.
