Windows 7: Browsers freeze taskbar :(

05 Feb 2009   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Browsers freeze taskbar :(

Hey there

I'm using win7 64bit and everytime I use a browser like Opera or Chrome or something the taskbar becomes completely unresponsive until I close the browser. I don't think this has always been happening though, because like I've had 64bit installed for about a week now and only noticed this now. So yeah if there's anyway to fix this without a reinstall I would really like to know it

The only thing I've installed lately were 181.22 drivers from nvidia which I uninstalled to no avail. don't know why that would help but there you go haha. Anyway thanks in advance to anyone that can help

I recently did a Repair Install and now mine is more stable then ever, it may be a better option then a clean install and the only thing that you will loose will be the nvidia driver as it will revert to the default one again, Repair Install

Hello Seth,

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

You could try doing a system restore to a point before this started happening. Info here if needed: System Restore

If that doesn't work, you could try this:SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Note: you will lose any hacks you've made such as removing the watermark if you run the SFC command.
