His taskbar icons are not level. See screenshot.

To the OP: Try right-clicking on your taskbar and clicking Properties. Then uncheck Use small icons. Apply changes, and then change back if you want. Hopefully the problem will go away.

Do as Jon said above, then unlock the taskbar and go to the top edge of the bar, then click and hold once you see the up/down arrow, to move the bar down to keep everything level :)
