Yeah? Is that why you use Windows??
I use Windows because it does what I want most of the time. When it does not, I either live with it or find/write software that makes Windows do what I want.

In your first screenshot in your OP, I was so focused on the format of the screens in the middle that I did not notice the task bar on the side. After I posted and after I noticed that the task bar was on the side, I moved the taskbar to be like yours (in a Virtual Machine) and installed the tiny app named T-Clock 2010. It seems to do what you want done... so I made my second post to your thread.

I'll lurk and see if you find a combination that does...
ddd, mmm, dd, yyyy
...on two lines using W7's native applets.

Or maybe I still don't understand what you want done.
I think you do. But I had it set that way on 25 different occasions. It is possible without of any programs.

May not make a difference but first day of week should be Sunday...if you use the Julian calendar.

EDIT, I hadn't thought of dragging the Task Bar wider, when I do it looks like your example, with the day listed twice and I can't change it either.

Try going to date and time settings-change date and time-change calender settings-Click reset.
This should wipe out any issues or unusual problems with the time in the system tray.

Then resetup all of your time settings
