Hello,

I'm having some issues with my windows taskbar, I'm not sure when it all started, but i'm pretty sure it began when i installed yahoo messenger then uninstalled some of it's components.

I can't right click on any of my taskbar minimized windows which used to bring up a menu with four or five options, and now does nothing when i attempt a right click.


Also windows minimized to the taskbar appear to opening behind each other rather than in front of each other as they should/used to do (and it doesn't matter what program i try to click on from the taskbar they all seem to open under the current window) and it's really frustrating to have to alt-tab to get to the other windows all the time.

All other task bar functions seem to work just fine.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I already tried that. And it didn't restore anything to do with the taskbar. The problems still existed after the restore, so this is not an option.
