What is your edition of 7. HP? etc.

Did you ever have a transparent taskbar.

If you have HP and the answer to 2 is yes. Maybe you should check drivers and graphics card.

Windows 7 x64 installed on a typical PC.

Yes, the transparent taskbar was here just earlier today, this is the first time I have had this problem and I have been using Windows 7 since the release date.

Go to device manager make sure you have updated drivers and graphics card. Then try system restore.

What's the status of "Desktop Window Manager Session Manager" service? If it stopped, start it. If doesn't start, go look into Event Viewer, search for "Desktop Window Manager Session Manager" service messages. Post any error(s) you see in there in here.
