Windows 7 Taskbar Icons Moving Around


I have Win 7 64 bit Ultimate and the icons on the task bar on the bottom seem to move around by themselves. If I move an icon to another location - it will just move back. Sometimes immediately and sometimes after a couple seconds. Sometimes even when I reboot.

Does anyone know what is happening? Or has this happened to anyone before?

  5. Make sure the icon that is moving is pinned, check Properties. It is possible to place an icon in the taskbar without pinning it, it will then move when you reboot.
