Windows 7: Taskbar disappearing after screensaver (PolarClock3)

Taskbar disappearing after screensaver (PolarClock3)

Hi,
I recently downloaded the PolarClock3 screensaver and installed it on my computer. Now, every time I leave my computer for a minute or so and the screensaver goes on, my taskbar disappears. It's not the start button though, it's only the taskbar with the shortcuts and the icon tray. If anyone knows a fix for this, it would be a great help.
Thanks,
Jaidyn

This is pretty normal for screensavers whilst the screensaver is running. What happens when you hit the Start bitton? - Does it come back.

No, no you misunderstood me. AFTER the screensaver turns off (after I move my mouse or press a key) the taskbar disappears. It isn't while the taskbar is running...

There's a chance that you may have had a corrupted installation of your screen saver. Why don't you try uninstalling it and reinstalling it? If you do so, be sure to do an Advanced Search to be able to find and delete any of the remnant files that the uninstall process misses.

If reinstalling the PolarClock3 app doesn't work, it may just be incompatible with Windows 7 or something else in your system, in which case you'll have to go to the site designer/manufacturer to see if they offer any tech support, suggestions, or assistance.

Okay, thanks. I'll try that.

Hi again, my taskbar still disappears. I've tried putting a password (found this solution on another site), I've re-installed it but it is still not working. Any ideas?

--- Sorry for the double post...
