Repair the Taskbar (All Windows)

If your taskbar has disappeared from the desktop or becomes hidden when you move your cursor near, it may be due to a corrupt registry key.

Close any open desktop and taskbar applications, then open your registry and find the key below.

Delete the entire "StuckRects" key, or "StuckRects2" for Windows 2000/XP, and reboot.

When Windows restarts the taskbar should be set back to a default working state.

Registry Settings
User Key : [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows \CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects]
