Anybody know how to correct this without having to re-boot?

More info please. Do you mean the boxes of minimised windows?

Should have said Taskbar and then Toolbars.

right-click a blank area of the task bar-properties-task bar and tick 'keep the task bar on top of other windows'. If already ticked, untick and tick again.

Sorry, further clarification: -
Occasionally, God knows why, but all the little "Tips" boxes that appear when you roll over anything in the task bar appear as if they have slipped down behind it like for instance the Date which should appear above the task bar when you run the cursor over the clock.
I've tried "Hide Task Bar" but that doesn't help, the only solution I can find is to re-boot.

brundle,
My god, what a wierd thing!!
But it works!
Thanks for that.
It is something and nothing, but ever so annoying when your'e keepimg an eye on, say your wireless link quality or something.
God, that is so simple but typically quirky, as we have come to expect from Microsoft!!

brundle,
Followed your link, but it's all uninteligible to me. I've read a lot of the "T" page and can find no related info.
It seems to be content listings for several downloads
Is there a section of the web site with such golden nuggets, explained in such succinct terms as yours, or are they all registry fix downloads?

You haven't looked hard enough.
