windows xp taskbar resizing

can anyone help me????????
having just installed xp home everything was going fine until the taskbar increased in size, ive tried to "drag" it down to the original size ie one row, but it goes from 2 rows down to nothing. I dont know if im explaining this very well but i know what i mean!

Try right click on the taskbar-is it locked?.If it is unlock it and try redragging the edge down,then re-lock it.

Right click on the taskbar,click properties,and try checking 'keep the taskbar on top of other windows'(also dont forget to keep unocking the task bar if you are dragging it(and re-locking if needed))

Ok, it's fixed. Thanks very much for your help. the licking and dragging was the fix that did it. Once again thanks.
