Windows 7: Taskbar annoyance

Taskbar annoyance

Now I am really not a fan of the colours on the task bar, especially considering they stay there after I have moved my mouse away from them. Any way I can remove them?

The colours that show up when you hover over an item on the task bar. Like this:

Windows 7 build 7100 x86
 
 

ok that happens sometimes for an unknown reason. my fix is to open up task manager (CTRL+SHFT+ESC), and kill explorer.exe. Then go to 'Applications' tab and click 'new task', then just type 'explorer' and press enter. This restarts explorer, and should resolve that issue (for the time being).

Strange. I don't have this problem on the RTM build, and I don't remember having it on the RC or on 7201 either. Like akramh asked, what build are you using?

This was an issue on a couple of builds. 7260 and I believe 7157.
