Windows 7: Problem with taskbar

Problem with taskbar

So, this thing started happening 2 days ago, I thought it's random coincidence, but it continues to happen.

If I enter fullscreen mode while watching something on youtube, the taskbar stays over the screen, like this Screenshot by Lightshot and I can't see pause button, and then if I wanna see it, I need to press either Opera button in taskbar or in this case WoW button, but both of them leads me into the game, and after i alt+tab from the game, this happens Screenshot by Lightshot it's like taskbar is replaced from the spell bar from the game, hoovering with mouse over wont return it and if i click in the place where taskbar should be it just takes me back to the game. This is really annoying and it started happening out of nowhere few days ago. Does anyone know how to fix this? I am sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum, and thanks in advance!

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

I have run across something similar in that my mouse pointe was laying on my taskbar. Be sure and put your mouse pointer in the upper corner of the screen.

Just wanted to let you know I have the exact same issue. I think it's related to a Windows Update, because I didn't have this issue before that. I spoke to a Microsoft Community Manager, and he was unable to determine whether this was related to an update (although I'm pretty sure). There have been some updates again today, but these new updates didn't fix the problem. I also installed the most recent GPU drivers, but that also didn't fix anything.

I'm using a AMD 7850 HD 2GB, btw. Maybe it's AMD related? I don't know... -.-'

EDIT: I see you also use Opera. It could be Opera related? But the thing is: the problem also occurs when I use Internet Explorer. Weird coincidence?

I accidentally unpinned Windows Explorer form the taskbar. However, from the start menu I pinned it back and it no longer shows stuff like recent in the jumplist. It just has "Windows Explorer" and "Unpin this programme from taskbar" How can I fix this? Thanks.
