Windows 7: A little taskbar problem

A little taskbar problem

It happens sometimes when I close some open windows. Some "stains" or should I call it "ghosts" are left on the taskbar. It's like the taskbar is dirty. I found the solution: I just have to click on the Show desktop icon and the taskbar is clean again. I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - Classic Theme and am using also the Classic Shell (but I doubt that this is of importance). Anyone ever had a problem with taskbar like I do? How to get rid of it so that I won't have to click on the Show desktop all the time just to "clean" it? Thank you!

Graphics Card Driver?

Note:
The word d-r-i-v-e-r disappears from my posts when I log out.

Is your graphics card d-r-i-v-e-r up to date?

OK, I've just updated them to the latest version. If that fixes it, great, if not I will post here again. Thank you.

Well no, updating didn't help. The problem is still here:



Anyone seen anything like this happening? How do I get rid of it? Thank you.

I says that this tool is for Windows XP and I doubt that it would help. Thank you anyway.
