Like I mentioned in that post, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is one of those games that doesn’t work well with widescreen monitors. Over at Widescreen Gaming Forums, a fix has been posted that you could try.

Remember, the changes you make the CFG file in your game is done at one’s own risk.

Browse to your MW2\players\ directory. Note that it’s not MW2\players for all people. Search config.cfg in your c:\documents and settings folder, and you should find the config file. Open config.cfg in wordpad and add the following lines:

set developer “1”
set sv_cheats “1”
set thereisacow “1337”
bind M “cg_fov 90”

Once ingame press M to increase your FOV. You can also change “90” to whatever FOV you prefer. Optionally, if you don’t want to have to remember to press M to set your FOV, locate the line ‘bind W “+forward”‘ and change it to:
bind W “+forward;cg_fov 90”
This will set your fov automatically as soon as you walk in each level.

Changing FOV in config_mp.cfg is untested, but it may work (no idea if this is detected by VAC).

For more details on this, you can check out the original thread here.
