View Full Version : Taskbars

I'm not sure how exactly to describe this correctly, so please bear with me!

On my taskbar, in the right bottom corner you have icons there etc, like MSN icon, NAV icon etc etc...

well when you do a mouseover, a yellow text box should come up sayin what that icon is. But the yellow box comes up BEHIND the taskbar. You can only just see the top of the yellow box.

How do i eliminate this problem?

Appears to be linked to how busy your CPU is at the time of "hovering".

Have a read of this thread (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=33721&message=151178&q=xp+taskbar+behind#151178) as well.

Well I don't think it is related to the CPU activity as I've been having it happen a bit lately and the System Idle Process was on 99%.

Yeah...It happens a lot, randomly, no matter what i am doing (or not doing)..

maybe its just a flaw in the programming?

Well I think it's rather safe to say that it wasn't planned for.
