The only thing I can think of is if you screwed around in your registry or maybe an option in the Taskbar options but I doubt Microsoft would put in anything like that.

Try restoring the start menu to default settings. How to Reset Start Menu Settings to Default in Windows 7

If that doesn't help and the problem gets really annoying you can always try a System Restore
