Solved: windows 7 taskbar and task manager
for some reason when i download this program it told me a message which i dont fully remember, but i think it said something like "this program cannot run in this version of windows 7" and then i pressed ok, and it totally screwed up my taskbar and task manager. my taskbar looks nothing like it should and makes navigation really hard compared to what im used to, and my task manager is just screwed totally. i attached some screens of it and if someone could help me

i did try changing the theme to fix it but it didnt work. but maybe i haven't looked in the right place. and no it wasn't rockmelt, this happened with a different program, which i forgot the name of, but i uninstalled it. i included an attachment of what it used to look like.
