Is that a hebrew version of windows?

Someone else posted a screenshot like that before and it was a hebrew version, that's why the start button is on the right.

Or are you talking about your icons?

Those icons are mirror images. Only the Orb is not backwards.

Tried to restore start menu to default-no good.

Do you have any desktop customization add-ons installed?

Perhaps then create a new user profile and copy over your desktop shortcuts, bookmarks etc. I know it's a pain but you did say that this problem only affected one user profile, not the others.

Im trying to avoid that-ill keep searching for a solution i think. Is there any way to compare the current account registry to the new account? and see maybe there is any diff?

Check your theme and try changing it to a standard Windows theme.

If your theme is normal, check that your display adapter (more information on your system would be helpful here) doesn't have some oddball setting that accidentally got tripped.

EDIT: You would be looking specifically for something like "Rotation" or "Viewing Angle" in your GPU card's advanced configuration tool.

i think you,ve "flipped"/reversed" something in stardock settings,try uninstall it and see if the taskbar goes back to default,if it does then its stardock,anyway try objectdock,see if you like that instead
