Windows 7: Windows 7 Taskbar Freezing

Windows 7 Taskbar Freezing

This happened to me when I had Vista. I upgraded to Win 7 shortly after it came out.

Lately, the taskbar freezes. It went from never doing it, to every two weeks, every few days... and now every night. And sometimes affects volume control as well.

I'm fully updated, defragged, virus and spyware free and about to scan my hard drive for any errors.

How can I make this stop freezing! It's driving me nuts!

Welcome! Good to see a fellow NYer.

Have you considered a Repair Install?

No. I haven't. Problem is, this requires the disk. I purchased my copy on Windows 7 online from Microsoft with a student discount. (Got it for $30.)
