Great tutorial, however, i'm having a little trouble getting it to display correctly.
I've followed the tutorial correctly (i think).
After i've restarted the explorer process the start button is very bright and i see a blackbox flashing when i hover over it, the taskbar is along the bottom. If i put the taskbar on the right hand side of the screen then it displays fine (all 3 stages).
Any ideas???
