WinXP Pro taskbar duplication/sizing

When I log onto windows recently the area of the taskbar that shows which programs are running (the button that can minimize/maximize a program) is about 1 cm wide on the right hand side and if 2 programs are open it is full and shows a scrollbar.
While unlocking to make that area of the taskbar bigger I have ended up with a split taskbar with 2 copies of each program, 1 in each copy.

How do I get back to one 'programs area'

How can I ensure that I boot up to a normal 'programs area'?

Thanks
