Hello ah_hup,

Well that surely looks annoying eh? This may help.

FIRST: Go here and follow instructions to backup your registry, just in case anything unexpected happens. These fixes are used very option, so it is highly unlikely that anything unexpected will happen, but you can never be too careful.

Then, try this, it's a fix from Kelly's Korner.

http://www.kellys-ko...toretaskbar.reg

Right-click the above link and choose Save Link As. When the pop-up to save opens, instead of saving as Text Document, choose All Files in the dropdown menu. Then add to the end of the file name, ".reg" without quotes.

OR

Open a new Notepad document. Copy and paste the following into the notepad:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2]
"Settings"=hex:28,00,00,00,ff,ff,ff,ff,02,00,00,00,03,00,00,00,6b,00,00,00,1e,\
  00,00,00,00,00,00,00,3a,02,00,00,20,03,00,00,58,02,00,00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects2]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StreamsMRU]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoToolbarsOnTaskbar"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoSetTaskbar"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoActiveDesktop"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"ClassicShell"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Explorer Bars\{32683183-48a0-441b-a342-7c2a440a9478}]
@="Media Band"
"BarSize"=-


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoBandCustomize"=dword:00000000
"NoMovingBands"=dword:00000000
"NoCloseDragDropBands"=dword:00000000
"NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000
"NoSetTaskbar"=dword:00000000
"NoToolbarsOnTaskbar"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoMovingBands"=dword:00000000
"NoCloseDragDropBands"=dword:00000000
"**del.NoMovingBands"=" "

In the right hand corner choose File > Save As.
Save to somewhere memorable (like the Desktop) as: restoretaskbar.reg

Whichever way you choose to save this registry file, when saved, double-click it to run. Follow up with a complete system restart.

Does this solve your problem? Let me know!

Best regards,

-Jason
