Windows 7: Canīt change order of taskbar properly

Canīt change order of taskbar properly

Hey everyone,

I donīt know what happened but I canīt change the order of the pinned buttons in my taskbar.
Partially actually.
I had a preferred order (My documents/Chrome/Utorrent/iTunes) but now if I change one of the buttons they keep sticking.
The weird part is that some buttons do move, but it depends on where I leave it to drop or else they return to their original place(example: iTunes can only go left or mid left but not right or mid right) which doesn't make any sense.

I have not locked my taskbar.

What should I do to return it to the original state?

Hi welcome to seven forum

i would start by trying a restore point before the issue started.

Did your AVG 2015 warn you that he detected any virus recently? Try doing a full checkup on your computer.

Sorry for the very late reply.
I don't have the problem anymore.
Unfortunately, I don't know what the solution was anymore so I guess I can't mark it as solved(?).

I do know that I didn't do a system restore though.
