Windows 7 Taskbar
So recently an older computer of mine has been experiencing many BSOD's like... BAD_POOL_HEADER (Safe Mode), The driver is mismanaging system PTES, BAD_POOL_CALLER and another one I think.
So I could not boot into Safe Mode or Normal Mode. Eventually I got through and I cleaned out the registry and had it reinstall video drivers as well.
Now all seems to work fine, except that the taskbar refuses to keep Use Small Icons checked, and when I click on Pin this program to taskbar with any random shortcut it does nothing at all.
Both these things worked fine before the BSOD spam I had.
It's an HP Workstation xw3100 running on the default VGA (video card died, getting a new one) with 2GB of DDR400 RAM (1GB factory RAM from HP) a SATA DVD/RW Drive and a Seagate 80GB 7200RPM HDD, everything else is as it was from the factory.
Another minor problem is that it will always detect the DVD/RW & HDD then ask me to press F1, reboot and detect the DVD/RW, HDD & CD Drive and ask me to press F1 again and then it will boot to Windows. (I have tried switching the IDE cable for a new one).
However that issue is not so huge.
