Ok, all the icons are there (word, desktop, media player, volume, network icon, etc etc), but when opening a folder, the Windows Explorer for example, there will be no button on the taskbar to switch to it. I can open programs, folders, documents, etc, but nothing will appear on the taskbar. However, alt+tab still lets me cycle through them. I went through add/remove programs and got rid of anything I didn't think I needed, and I can't recall installing anything recently that may have triggered it. I did a virus scan, and also a registry cleanup (with registry mechanic) and still no luck. Tried using ad-aware to see to check for spybots, and also looked through all the programs that boot up at start (via a reg scanner) and browsed through all the little windows optinos (properties, configurations, etc). I haven't a clue what's wrong. Everything is pretty good except I dont see any folders or anything on the task bar! Thanks for any tips.
