Hidden text behind task bar

I know its me again,
Can anyone tell me why, when I hover the mouse pointer over a task bar icon the resulting text info. is hidden behind the task bar.
I realise there is probably a simple explanation for this but I unfortunately, don't know it!

im not sure why this happens but find that if you click an empty area of the desktop and then hover over it again it will be on top.

Hi huggyg71,
Yes sometimes this works,Iv'e just defragged and now there on top again.
Strange this I wonder if there is a permanent solution?

It happens, intermittent - seems to come and go - I just accept it as a nuisance.

Yes it happens to me as well, I do what huggyg71 does ,this seems to cure it for a while. What's your os? I'm using ME, is it just in ME or what?
I'd love to know the answer as well.

Hi esbe,
I'm using xp,until recently I was using Me and it
occasionally did it then although not quite as much (this may be my imagination though).
Just wondered if there was a cure
