You appear to have fixed this.

I would make the banner only as wide as the fixed width of your page.
Then, make another image that looks like that banner image but has a
straight line bottom that lines up with the right edge of your banner
image. Set the straight image as the background of the header and place
the banner image in the header. It will overlay the background image
but you won't be able to see an edge because they are sized the same at
the place where they meet. This gets rid of the scrollbar and also lets
you have a header image that continues for as long as the viewport does,
instead of cutting off abruptly.
