    That's like how it used to look before WinXP. You must've accidentally changed an option somewhere in the Display control panel. Not in Windows ATM so I'm not exactly sure where the option is, if there is one.

    Hi guys n girls,

    Right I've solved it! After scrutinisng the internet, I found that there's an option under perfomance settings in the system properties menu that enables it, so I'm back to normal now. Thanks for your comments.

    The taskbar is part of a Vista Inspirat brico pack I installed, its basically a bit of Vista and OSX, but the dock they supplied was crap, but I love the taskbar. Try this link .

    Cheers
