Toolbar items color stuck

Hello, it's me again

Now I have problem, that is very annoying (at least to me). That happens sometimes.
So, when mouse enter to icon in toolbar, then background of that item get 'light'. When mouse leave from there, that 'light' stay there and don't dissapear.

Hello Zan,

The light on a taskbar icon like that is to indicate that it has just opened while you were in another active window, and is alerting you to this. Does clicking on the icon return it to it's normal color?

No, it is not that. If I move mouse to other item, then that item will have the back light, not the first.

Does it continue to do this after restarting the computer?

No, then it works for some time. But because I don't want to restart the compter over all time, I just restart process "explorer.exe"

Zan,

Double check to see what the registry is set for in the the tutorial below to see if it may be set to 0 instead of 3.

Taskbar Button Flash - Change Flash Count


If that doesn't help, then you might see if turning animations for the taskbar and Start menu off will.

Oh, I used both of them. In the first option, value was 1, and in the second option I changed value to 0.
