Windows 7: Taskbar inactive upon startup

Taskbar inactive upon startup


I have a weid problem, not serious, but just damn annoying.
When i start up my comp and log in everything looks ok, i can click any icon on my desktop and they work, but my windows taskbar is inactive.
The only way i have found so far around this problem is to ctrl/alt/del which takes me to the green admin page where i can start task manager, when task manager is clicked it automaticly sends me to desktop and i can then use the taskbar.

Any ideas anyone

Hit start, and type cmd, then right click and run it as admin. Type sfc /scannow.

This will check for any errors in windows (which is what I think there is).
