This is the nature of the web. They might look at your site on an internet tablet, their cellphone, on a small and a large monitor. It's not really a problem, it's supposed to be this way.
What is your url?

you can't start changing their screen res just to suit your website even if you could

Honestly you don't really have an issue, imho.

Not a major issue.

You have it set to be a width of 1156px wide. This causes horizontal scrolling in any screen setting less. Since a setting of 1024px width is the most popular setting you may want to consider making it fit this size screen or allow it to be fluid.

does every one agree on this?

Would you only allow yellow cars in the parking lot of your brick and mortar store, only because it happened to be the most popular color? :-)

I design for 1024, but only placing additional—almost extraneous—information in the right third of the page so users with 800x600 resolution can still view all important information, functionality, and design.

So the yellow cars can park in front, but the rest of the cars have a parking garage :)

Nice approach :)

For this website, more than 99% of the users are on 1024 or larger, so that is what this site is optimized for, but also notice that the width is not fixed.

I think that all other websites I have or have been involved with has been optimized for 800px wide resolution, because of the 5-10% users that are still using it.
