if you want to "mirror" your monitors, then yes. But you'll see 2 mouse movements...etc. If you just want the task bar on both screens, I dont believe you can do this.

There is an application that can do what you require : Display Fusion.

It is, however, not free although there is a trial version available.

DisplayFusion: Multi-Monitor Taskbar and Desktop Wallpaper|Binary Fortress Software

Hope this helps.
