When you say it is stuck, do you mean frozen/un-clickable or does it not have the ability to move around the desktop?
We also need more detail to help - how about filling in System Specs? We will find it a lot easier if you can fill it in

Hi, sorry I haven't been able to reply for a week.

After research thru some forums around the net, it seems to be that the mouse is causing the problems. Have you tried ctrl-alt-delete command, then pressing cancel? If this unfreezes the taskbar, then you may need to try changing the mouse. Let us know what happens.

My taskbar is stuck on classic.
So I just installed Windows 7 last night, and as I logged on, my taskbar looked like Windows Classic Taskbar with windows 7 abilities. I can't change it for some reason, each theme I try is Windows Classic. Aero theme doesn't work, but aero peek does. Anyone have any idea how to fix it?
