I will certainly try to help. When you say "all programs progress bar" what do you mean exactly? Please take a screen shot of that from whatever operating system you've seen it in and I'd gladly help you.

I'll tell you what I think you mean now. You want your internet browser to show you how much of a particular file you are downloading. You have that with the built in browser, Internet Explorer. If you'd like to add your programs to the taskbar, just start them from the start menu and, while the are running and their icon appears in the taskbar, right click and select pin to taskbar option.

thanks for answer me baarod,
what im talking about is taskbar progressbar,
it start when u for example copy a file or detect problems or usb
but this little beautiful thing doesn"t work with all the programs that are in a progress status,
and i want to add other programs that work with progress bar (like idm) to the taskbar progress bar to follow their progress without restoring them

Using small icons and Combine when full option, all browsers are showing download progress without third party apps. Lunascape and Firefox show haw many % is completed, Chrome and Opera a progress bar, IE both.

Not possible. You must call one of the new Windows 7 APIs to do this. Any open source junk will be just a hack. Taskbar Extensions (Windows)

You need to contact the developer of whatever download manager you're using and tell them to get with it and support the current operating system.
