Duelview monitor question.

Ok I have a setup that is pretty simple, using a nividia 7300GT I have a VGA cable to on old CRT screen, and a HDV cable to my LCD 42" TV.

I enjoy having it setup for the duelview mode, that way i can watch a movie, on my computer screen while still using my CRT to use email, IM or anytyhing else. Or while playing some game on the big screen i can use IM on the little one, ect...

Now here is the problem, when watching TV or playing my xbox 360 the setup is still in duelview, and if last time i had the broswer opened and it was in the TV, it shows up on the TV screen, which is being used for something else. (so i cant see it)
If i close the explorer via the task manager, and reopen the epxlorer it reopens in the TV side!

The only way to get it back to my CRT screen is to change the source on my TV and drag it over.
The other way to fix this is to set the video card option to clone or single display, which is kinda annoying to do too.

Is there a program, or some trick to get all the stuff from screen #2 onto screen #1?

Na i read through that, didnt tell me anything to help me out.

The real question is how can you disable duelview on the fly?
Its really annoying having to change the setting to single view everytime an icon is on the 2nd screen. When i am using the 2nd screen for something else.
