my taskbar is messing up what can I do? RRS feed

  • Question

  • At times its going left to right as if I'm clicking on something. I don't know what is going on. Like its doing this:

    <<<<< >>> <<<< (this is indicating how its moving)

    and then it stops and then it does it again. It never did this before.
