Ok this is for all of you techies out there who are smarter than I am, lol. Ok, I have continuous problems with the taskbar in windows xp disappearing. I found that it was due to some registry corruption of some kind called "stuckrects", and all I would have to do was to delete it, and reboot, and everything else would be fine. Well, the problems that I have is everytime I delete it and reboot, the disappearing taskbar comes back, and I look in the registry, and the "stuckrects" key is there again! Now, how the hell that thing keeps getting back in there is beyond me. I thought once you delete something from the registry that it would be gone forever. How does it keep getting back in there? If anyone can please help me, I would greatly appreciate it. It's beyond me. Thank you.
