I have seen this behaviour before in Distance for Windows. In my experience, this is associated with the projection (or units) used in the shape file. Double check that the shape file of your study area is as you expect; open it in QGIS (free GIS software) to check its properties.
Back in Distance for Windows, you can use the zoom feature to magnify the study area map.
As your cursor moves around the map in
Distance for Windows, the coordinates under the cursor are
displayed in the task bar. Make sure those coordinates are
consistent with your expectations.
