Windows 7: Invisible space below taskbar, mouse gets "lost"

Is that a single screen shot of what you see ?
Or, did you take 3 screen shots and combine them into 1 image to upload here ?

Sorry for my dumb question, but I'm not sure what I'm looking at, and what you see

Well, this is the idea that the graphics application on the right has of "Entire Screen" when I choose the capture area. This also used to be different, a few weeks ago the screenshots still ended at the bottom of the taskbar.

I suspect that during some Windows Update, the graphics drivers got updated to a newer, more buggy version, but obviously I can't tell for sure.

Sorry for being such a pest but I don't know if I'm supposed to find this problem entertaining, interesting or frustrating

Sorry but I don't see it. I'm sure it's obvious to you but not to me.

Does your display have a Auto adjustment button? If so, have you tried it?
