Several times per day my taskbar randomly vanishes, most of the times i'm not even physically touching the computer when this occurs. I googled the issue and it seems to be fairly prevalent, but i was afraid to just start guessing and changing the registry without consulting a more specialized forum vs taking random people's advice from google.

This is a brand new machine, i've only used it on a daily basis at work for about a month now. This particular problem began this week, and has grown rather annoying since i lose my work and browsing as soon as i minimize the windows. So far i have to restart, and it's back to normal for a few hours, then it happens again. I don't browse suspicious sites, open suspicious emails/links, no torrenting or downloading alike, ect. I read you can always do the ole fashioned Ctl-Alt-Delete method and stop all .exe process, then start a new explorer.exe task, but i'd like to fix the issue moreso than just using a workaround like that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
