XP taskbar problem

Hi Everyone,

I have a small but irritating problem at the moment with the taskbar in XP. Every now and again if i want to select a shortcut from the taskbar, the description of the shortcut displays behind the taskbar instead of in front. I have attached a screenshot to show exactly what i mean. A reboot seems to fix the problem, but it keeps happening. Has anybody else experienced it? and if so do you know what causes it, and how do i go about fixing it?

Many Thanks

Rob.

I have this same problem too, and you don't know how much it means to me to find others with the same problem. The way I've fixed it is to unlock the taskbar, drag it to another position (left, right, top, or bottom) then return it to it's original position, then, re-lock. This seems to fix the problem for me. Good luck.

I've gone back to the 'classic' theme before from XP's default, and both exhibit this problem. I do not use StyleXP or any other theme program. It only happens every once and a while, so it's not a big deal, but it can be when you're trying to get status information from a system tray icon pop-up message.
