Hello folks,

this "bug" happened to me after i uninstalled superantispyware(I don't say that's the cause of it). The thing is previously I could use almost the whole taskbar for minimizing applications. Now this little line showed up and it limits the space for minimizing. Hard to explain, I'll use pictures.
This is how it is now

So when i minimize programs, they cannot go pass the line I circled with red. I tried moving the damn line to the right, but it just won't move!
I was sure, previously when it was all good I could use that space between the circled line and the line to the right, but now I can't.

Not a big problem, but it is really annoying for me. God bless whoever can fix this problem for me.

You can usually fix this sort of thing by right clicking on the Task Bar and seeing what Toolbars are installed. For example, if you enable the Desktop toolbar you'll get something similar to what you've described (but it'll say Desktop in it).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

yes yes i know, but I've never changed that and there was always a check mark only on language bar and quick launch.
even when the problem was in place, there was still checkmarks only on those 2 toolbars.

More then likely this issue is caused by a corrupted profile or something still lingering from the malicious superantispware. Try making a new account, and see if the issue is still there.
