Taskbar Flashes - Vista

  Stingpin 15:11 19 Apr 2008


it's getting a little worrying and frustrating too, but my taskbar is always hidden, unless i'm doing something of course, but when i'm just on a website or something, it flashes up for a split second and then disappears.
i've no idea why and it doesn't seem to be a virus, according to AVG, SpyBot Search and Destroy, Commodo Firewall or Avira, it's a bit wierd.

Has anyone else had anything even remotely similar?

cheers very much,

Right Click Taskbar, Properties, and UnTick 'Auto-Hide the Taskbar'.

Tick 'Keep the Taskbar on top of other windows'.

Click OK, Bingo you're done, Taskbar shows all the time.

thing is though, that i like having my taskbar hidden, thats not the issue, it's the fact it flashes up every now and then which is getting on me t*ts
sorry for not making that clear in the original post, i re-read it and realised i hadn't been totally clear

UnTick 'Keep the Taskbar on top of other windows' Will stop it doing the Flash.
