    Not really a big issue, but it is very annoying.
    Any way to fix it? Thank you (:



    (idk if this helps, but i noticed this issue after installing 7zip x64 bit edition)

    Some other program that's running is reserving that area.

    See if it happens in another user account.

    Anything that this is not happening to? Try a full screen program?

    I have nothing special to offer but 7zip does install an explorer addon (for the context menus) and I have had all manner of odd things happen with explorer* addons (I had a file shredder once kill the ability to have working shares) in the past let alone winding the oddities of x64 and newer OSes into the mix.

    *note this is nothing really to do with internet explorer but straight up windows explorer. For earlier systems I used http://www.hijackfree.com/en/ but I have not really tried it against windows 7.

    Well, the issue goes on-off. So, because I barely use other user accounts, I don't truly know if the issue spawns there too. Also, another occasional running program is Rocketdock - maybe that's related to my issue?

    If there's no permanent solution, I can easily fix the issue by move the taskbar to the top, then switching it back to the bottom.
