    The task bar is missing on my friends computer, this is after spybot, hijackthis (yes i know what is what), and norton. I used the regedit to take out the Stuckrects entry...

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer
    \StuckRects

    Which fixed it before, but now it's come back up again. I can't figure out what keeps adding that to the registry. Because I did this a couple days ago and it fixed it fine, but now if I delete the entry and reboot it's back on. If anyone knows anything about this or can help, thanks.

    UPDATE: I thought I had fixed it but it randomly disappeared again. I don't know if this guy is going to a stupid site or something or if that's what causes it. But if I have to hear this guy complain about his taskbar after I fixed his entire computer I'm gonna kill him. You know how you can get those menu bars in explorer that you can search with, like the Yahoo Toolbar. This dude had like 7 of them, there was more toolbar than viewing screen. Anyways, thanks for any help.
