If you've made any modifications in the Display Properties - Appearance Tab,
the changes may be applied to the Taskbar as well. I think changing the
Caption Buttons changes the apperance of Taskbar as well, according to the
information I got from David Candy. So in a nutshell, one of these might
help you reset the Taskbar's appearance to defaults.
1. Inspect the settings under Accessibility Options (Display)
2. Set the theme back to Windows XP (If it reads as Windows XP (Modified). ]
3. Compare the registry settings with a new user profile
( HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics )
4. Try a System Restore rollback
