Windows taskbar problem has me pulling hair out!



Ok, I don't exactly know to explain the problem I am having other than to explain what happens...if that makes any sense.

You know if, say, you have 5 applications running, and you shrink them all down. They all appear on your taskbar right? As little squares with the names....

Well here is my problem, once in a while...like every 10 minutes or so, if I am opening a new window, or clicking one of the shrunken windows to switch to that window, the whole thing locks up for 10 seconds....you know how the window you are currently on is highlighted (in my case grayed out a bit)? Well the window I was on and the one I want to go to both get selected.

The only way to quickly fix the problem is to alt-tab to the process I want.

I have done countless searches for fixes for this problem but have never run into anyone with the exact same issue....I did find a thread about going to services and turning off the WIA as well as turning of some image program, neither of which worked.

I am running WinXP with a 1gighz processor with 640 megs of ram, so I don't think memory is the culprit.

Any insight?!



Hmm...dunno...I had that problem with my old comp because I had the wrong driver, but in your case... :confused:
