  • Hi,

     

    I would like to verify if you installed any software recently. What is "un-classic version"? Please help me capture a screenshot of your taskbar to verify the issue.

     

    How to capture a screenshot

    ------------------------------------------

    1. When the error message occurs, press the Print Screen key (PrtScn) on your keyboard.

    2. Click the "Start" menu, type "mspaint" in the Search Bar and Press Enter.

    3. In the Paint program, click the "Edit" menu, click "Paste", click the "File" menu, and click "Save".

    4. Save the picture onto your desktop and Upload to SkyDrive.

     

    First, I suggest you adjust the settings in taskbar properties. You can refer to the following article.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Change-how-buttons-appear-on-the-taskbar

     

    Second, you can perform System Restore and use ShellExView to check third party Shell Extension.

     

    1.     Download ShellExView v1.41 from the following link http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.zip

     

    Please Note: The third-party product discussed here is manufactured by a company that is independent of Microsoft. We make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.

     

    2.     Right-click the "shexview.zip" file, select "Extract All", the Extraction Wizard will prompt.

    3.     Click Next, input "C:\ShellExView" (without the quotation marks) in the "Files will be extracted to this directory" textbox.

    4.     Click Next and click Finnish.

    5.     Open the "C:\ShellExView" folder and double-click the "shexview.exe" file. It will scan the registry for all the shell extensions.

    6.     Select all the non-Microsoft extensions in pink by press "Ctrl" in the keyboard.

    7.     Click the "Disable Selected Items" on the toolbar and click Yes.

    8.     Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.

     

    Best Regards,

    Niki
