Objects in Taskbar resize dynamically.

The objects in my taskbar take up the full space of it, is there a way for me 2 have it the way it used to be. The objects used 2 take only a predetermined amount of space in the taskbar. It randomly started doing this after my explorer froze, i restarted my computer but the problem persists.

*Edit* Thanks guys i tried the system restore as a last resort and it worked, was really trying to avoid it.

I dont have much help for you. I see the problem but dont know how to fix it. Do you have a backup you can restore from?

Old Taskbar

I skimmed this article at http://www.sevenforums.com/software/13035-7-free-windows-7-tweaking-utilities.html and it might have some software where you can download to restore the original taskbar and then "unpin" the items that are on your current task bar.

I have also read that there **might** a registry hack to get the original taskbar back. Try doing a Google search for "Windows 7 Taskbar Hacks."

Hope that helps,
Dan
