Windows 7: Taskbar shows on YouTube videos.

Windows 8.1
Taskbar shows on YouTube videos.

Hey guys,
I wasn't too sure where to post this however, I have two monitors and on my smallest monitor it's perfect,
however on my main monitor (32") when I watch YouTube videos in full screen it shows the taskbar at all times,
I don't know the cause, does anyone have any ideas.

This could be due to some application running in the background and not letting you see the fullscreen video. You can check that and uninstall/turn off that application.

Here's how to find out what application is causing the problem:
1. Do a search in the Start Menu searchbar for EVENTVWR and open the exe file.
2. In the middle, there should be a section called "Summary of Administrative Events". Click the + box in front of Errors.
3. There should be a large amount of errors reported in the last 24 hours under Application Errors. Double click the Application Errors name
4. Click on any of the Errors and in the grey description it should give a Faulting application name. That is your culprit application. You can either uninstall that application or I'm sure there is a way to turn the problem reporting off if you feel the application is important or is not actually causing errors.

Hey archer,
thanks for the input.

Here is the errors that are shown, seems to be the same thing.
EDIT: It seems to be Microsoft Security Essentials,
i've never had this probably before with this program, I uninstalled it and no change.

I also noticed that, it opens in a new window for Aero.

You have to search the application which is causing the issue. Don't just keep on uninstalling all the applications that you find here under errors. I've mentioned that try to switch off that application. You might end up in uninstalling some important system app and damaging the OS. Please be careful.
