Taskbar Problems

Good morning,

My taskbar demonstrates the following problems:
- when my mouse hovers over a taskbar icon, the open documents are not those of that application, but of one next to it or often, a running application which isn't listed.
- not all of my open applications are on the taskbar, and there is no ability to
- after a short while, the clock and the entire right block disappears and is a white box
- even after i close an application, the duplicate icon (for the open files) remains

It's driving me crazy! The only thing that fixes it is a reboot, and that's only a temporary fix. Any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated...Leisha

The first thing I notice is you have 124 processes running. That is a huge amount.
Could you post a picture of all your Start Up programs using msconfig/Start Up.

Example:

You could have so many things going on that their is no room on the Taskbar or the Taskbar is doubling up.

Taskbar has inherited taskbar problems
This computer is about a year old now and it's starting to feel like the old one. The taskbar often locks up even though it's set to autohide and conversely often fails to appear when I mouse over the bottom of the screen (gotta hit the Windows key). It's kind of random, and going to properties and...
