Windows 7: Black line on desktop?

Black line on desktop?

Hi,

Lately, I've seen a long black line on my computer. It usually hides beneath my taskbar but pops out when I use a media player in full screen (or any full screen program for that matter). I can move it around with the mouse too. Does anyone know what it is and if you do, how to remove it? I've attached a screenshot (with a large red arrow pointing to it) if that helps.

Thanks,
Jaidyn

Are you using Rainmeter or something similar? Sure it's not some part of a RM skin? Does it give you anything when right clicking on it?
