Seems to be a liitle bug in the system. Happens to everyone once in a while. Try clicking on the show desktop area. Just right of the clock, lower right.

Are you running RC or earlier beta build? This bug should be gone otherwise.

Did you rightclick uncheck Always on Top?

I would run sfc /scannow to check system file integrity.

If it continues to bother you, run a Repair Install. I just had to run one to get my Sticky Notes and taskbar icons back after creating a second account.
