Hi,
I just installed the AVG 6.0 Anti-virus program and now my taskbar moved to the left side of my screen in a vertical position. I cannot for the life of me get it back along the bottom of my screen. I am running XP Home. This happened once before and all I could do was a System Restore. I could do that again but I don't want to have the problem again if I re-install the AVG program which I want (my Norton subscription is up the end of this month). Help please.

Question:
If the taskbar was not locked before the install, could it then be moved by the install?

I think I will do a System Restore. The taskbar should then be back at its default place at the bottom. I will then make sure it is locked and then re-install AVG 6.0. Hopefully this will work.
