Windows 7: Autohide doesn't deactivate

Autohide doesn't deactivate

I'm running windows 7 home premium 64bit and my taskbar is set to autohide, but whenever I move my mouse to the edge of the screen, it steals focus from whatever program I am using when it reactivates! This means that if I'm playing a game and I move my mouse to the right edge of the screen the reactivating taskbar forces me to the desktop. When I tried to turn off autohide, it didn't work and when I ran settings again the checkbox was refilled. Is there any way to force a reset to factory defaults through a registry edit or is there a file I can download to force explorer back to factory defaults?

I don't know if this will help but try this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Taskbar will no longer AutoHide
I have my Taskbar set to autoHide. It has worked fine until recently. Now it will not hide- I have tried toggling the autohide feature On and OFF. I can not even drag the Taskbar out of the way. Ideas?

Taskbar Autohide
Is anyone else utilizing the auto-hide option for the taskbar? And if so, is it saving your choice for that option between restarts? It seems everytime I reboot, Win7 forgets that I've chosen to auto hide it.
