Also try replacing the mouse and see if the problem persists.

Windows 7 Ulimate Edition 32 Bit

Did anyone ever find a solution for this? I have the exact same problem.

EDIT: I fixed mine, hopefully this works with your problem as well.

I found this thread to be helpful:
question about windows explorer in on the taskbar

A little more info though-

I searched for "explorer" in the start menu search and saw two entries. I checked the properties and each one had a different target. I deleted the one that was pinned to the task bar and changed the target of the other to

%SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /e,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}

then re-pinned it and it works fine now.
