Windows 7: Systray icon justification?

Systray icon justification?

For a very long time, my systray icons were top-justified, like this:

I recently installed Symantec Endpoint Protection, and of all the weird things to have as a side effect, it (or something else that coincidentally happened at the same time) center justified my systray:

Is there a way to tweak that? I know it's a trivial matter, but I don't like the centering.

Can you move the taskbar back to normal size, then resize it. That may reset it, or try dragging the icons up. What happened at the same time?

Nope, alas that made no difference. I suppose it's not the end of the world, just makes me wonder why heh.

I installed Symantec Endpoint Protection right before it happened. -shrug-

Whoa, I take that back. I just screwed with it again and it fixed it. Apparently if I move the mouse up (while holding the top of the taskbar) to the point it gets quite extended, when I return it to the "standard" size as indicated above there is yet one more lower position beneath that level. It keeps the taskbar at the same height, but moves the systray icons to that center justifed position.

I didn't catch it first time because I went up to fast and shot right by that first "click" up position where it fixes my issue.
