Taskbar Color problem

For some reason on my taskbar there's this little white box that won't go away It appeared after i accidentally unchecked "Lock the taskbar" and then re-checked it.

The white box I'm talking about is circled in red.

Sorry I don't know how to put a picture within my post on these forums.

check your task manager to see if any process related to that white box. Does this happen after you reboot too?

Hope this helps,
