Hi there, this happens when the process "explorer.exe stops responding. (It happens sometimes with my PC as well). To check what's causing this issue, download and install Process Explorer to see what's running under explorer.exe and accordingly eliminate this issue by removing that product.

Regards,

That's another good point Dennis. He can certainly follow your advice to check if that's the case. I had this issue and surprisingly, when checked using Process Explorer, it was an ESET antivirus process (egui.exe) causing this issue. After uninstalling ESET, this issue never recurred.

My taskbar is stuck on classic.
So I just installed Windows 7 last night, and as I logged on, my taskbar looked like Windows Classic Taskbar with windows 7 abilities. I can't change it for some reason, each theme I try is Windows Classic. Aero theme doesn't work, but aero peek does. Anyone have any idea how to fix it?
