XP Taskbar Shadow

  Hangus 13:23 24 Aug 2005

My Blue taskbar has suddenly developed a kind of shadow. It looks like there is a second taskbar, one hidden behind another. I have tried getting hold of it but I cannot. Anybody had a similar problem? I have tried a system restore, but this has had no effect.

if you have set taskbar to be locked which is advisable, and you can still move the taskbar thentaskbar is not locked.did you press ok after ticking the box?
