Taskbar

Mcafee security center popped up and told me that i had a a virus, so i clicked ok, and it started the download. i then quickly realized that i was about to get a virus. i closed everything as quickly as i could, doesn't seem to be any real damage except now my taskbar is in front of and covering the bottom of my browser. i'm kind of unfamiliar with Windows 7, and i was hoping some one could tell me how to move it back? it would be much appreciated.

Is there a method/hack or a 3rd-party program that allows the user to hide the taskbar by dragging its top border line downwards, after un-locking the taskbar? I remember I could do that under Win9x.
