Windows 7: Interesting taskbar issue lately.

Interesting taskbar issue lately.

It keeps moving or resizing by itself whenever a screenmode change occurs such as when opening a game or enabling a second screen.

Can't quite put my finger on why.

When it moves (usually to the top) the properties also change to Top as well, yet when it returns to the large icon size, the icons remain small and the option for small icon remains ticked.

I think this might have started after installing Office 2010, but it was definitely sometime after NVD 257.15, however it occured again after uninstalling the drivers (screen mode changed) so i expect it might be a running process causing it :\.

anyone else seen anything similar?

lol, anyway, this is rather tricky to reproduce so i'll keep trying to get it to occur until i can find an STR method.

looks like i've found an STR for the taskbar height resizing. simply let my 3D screensaver start. i'll try setting that back to D3D, it could be an opengl driver glitch.
