I have Windows 7 on my laptop. For the past week, the taskbar has been taking spells where it will freeze and I cannot click anything on it. If I click the bar several times, however, a popup message comes up saying Internet Explorer is not responding and will give me a selection of whether to restart the program or close the program. Either of these choices causes the taskbar to refresh and it will be operational again for a little while until it freezes again. This has typically been happening when I have Windows Media Player running but the problem didn't begin until I installed some software for a Wacom Bamboo tablet. The most confusing thing about it is that I haven't even had Internet Explorer opened or running when this happens. Could the Media Player be causing this problem or is it my tablet software? I have run virus scans and have discovered that it is not a virus that could be causing it. What can I do to fix this?
