Windows 7: Tasks in taskbar do not work

Tasks in taskbar do not work



So, when I click on the task - nothing happens. Still, I can launch Chrome (in specific example) from the taskbar menu under the tasks. This happens almost with every program (except MS Office, Explorer).
Don't know how to solve that.
Would appreciate any help. Thanks!

Try this,

Jump Lists - Reset and Clear All Items

then try this:

Please Run sfc /scan now using option 2 in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back the results.
Please indicate what message was displayed at the end:

Windows found no integrity violations

OR

Corrupt files were found, and windows was unable to fix them.

OR

Corrupt files were found, and windows successfully repaired them

Thx for the reply, andrew129260!
I did as You suggested. Used the .bat file from the jump lists topic, then I did sfc /scannow using elevated cmd.
No result, I'm afraid(

Windows found no integrity violations and tasks continue not to work.

Is there anything except total windows reinstall, that I can do?
