Cannot Click Taskbar In An Open Window


My taskbar is un-clickable, i had to press ctrl alt del, so i can click the start menu and application that is pinned on the taskbar. But i can click the desktop icons, but when i open it (ex. If i double click my computer) i cant also click anything even the min, max and close buttons.

I already scan for worms, spyware and virus and it detects nothing. I already check the "regedit" and no explorer.exe and iexplore.exe sub-folders are in the folder of image file execution option
I already do the sfc /scannow and the result is no error found.

Before, a message sometimes pops up saying that explorer.exe has stop from running then it restarts but still i can able to open and click the applications in the desktop and taskbar then after a week or 2, another message is popping up pwdbnk.exe is stop from running(an application for the biometric finger print).

Toolbars When Right Click On Taskbar

I just upgraded to windows 7-64 bit home premium from vista-64 bit. Now i notice that when i rt-click on the taskbar, and then select the toolbars option, i see the usual ones like the quick lunch, links, adress, desktop, but then i also see two that i have never seen before; they are itunes and tablet pc input panel.

I do have itunes application, but why does it appear as a toolbar option? Besides, when i click it, nothing happens. And, i really don't know anything about the tablet pc input - may be this later is a normal option that i had never paid any attention. I'd appreciate any help in resolving the itunes toolbar issue.

Taskbar Window Switching

Under win7 if i'm running excel with say 5 different workbooks active they're all shown on the task bar as one excel icon. Then when i click that it shows the 5 active workbooks and asks me to select one to activate.

Is there some way to tell win7 that when i click on the excel icon i just want the most recently active version immediately activated? Or to display separate icons rather than all stacked up as one?

This isn't just an excel issue, but many other programs where there are multiple instances or data sets open. I just want to go to the most recently used one which is correct 95% of the time. Can i eliminate the extra step?

Taskbar / Window Color Problem

For some reason, my windows 7 taskbar color (and window color) is light blue when it's not supposed to be. I've changed my themes a couple of times, but the color is still light blue, and not changing. I've opened up the "window color" tab, but it shows me stuff like: "to turn on windows aero, select a windows theme. " I've never had this experience before, because whenever i opened the window color tab, it would show me colors, and a transparency slider, and stuff like that.

Re Enable Taskbar And Window Transparency

I'm running windows 7 home premium on a brand new asus ul50a series notebook. This morning i got an "important" microsoft update message, and so i updated my laptop, rebooted, and noticed that my taskbar and window borders were no longer transparent. Before the update everything worked fine, but now this does not work. Everything, so far, works excellent except the transparency issue. I would like to find out how to fix this problem without having to do a system restore since i've already put a lot of important files onto my new laptop. Here are some screenshots of my not-correctly-working windows 7 personalize settings:

Anyone know how to fix this, so i can pick my taskbar color and opacity settings?

Hard Drive, Devices Window Takes Long Time To Open

When i open the "computer" window, to see the hard drive, devices, etc. It's taking five minutes for it to load. Why is it taking so long when the drives and devices should just pop up? Click on the start icon, move over to my computer, then wait forever for it to load.

It doesn't make sense why, this system is analyzing the content for so long when i just bought tis computer. I have a mac, and i know this is different. But my dell laptop, and my wife's old computer doesn't nearly take this long. If i right click over computer, open in new window appears, and it acts as it always has. Why the unnecessary difference between the two. It should be fixed.microsoft shouldn't let this go on for long.

Taskbar - Cannot Tell What Applications Are Open And What Are Not

In the past the taskbar icons was on left and the applications open was in the middle. Now they both are all over the place. I can't tell what is opened or not. I want it back the it was. Also i want my show desktop icon back. I hate the extra step of right click the task bar and then click on show desktop. Why speed things up and then slow things down when i have to close all the icons up because i don't what is open and what is not. Also i hate right clicking the internet explorer to start another one again. I miss xp where you just click on it and it opened up another one.

Taskbar - Switching Between Open Windows

My question is regarding switching between many open windows in desktop in taskbar. For example if an excel program is open and i have 10 different worksheet open, when i click on excel it shows me those in thumbnail view but as i open 11th worksheet it switch to a list mode. In thumbnail view my problem is that it does not show full nale of worksheet and i have to wait for a sec to see the full name, i instead like the list view. I want to be in the list mode all the time rather than thumbnail, what is the setting for that? Please let me know the resolution. Let me know if my question is not understandable.

One Click Print From Outlook

I have outlook 2007. I receive pdf invoices. With xp, i'd right click the attachment and click print. The file would print. In windows 7 rc i get a prompt "open this file with acrobat" click ok, file opens in acrobat, click what used to be print using last settings in acrobat, print preferences appear, click ok to print. Then close file and back to outlook for the next one.

The default application for pdf is set to acrobat. Please help, this is driving me mad and despite everything in windows 7 looking great this will send me back to xp if i can't find the fix.

Mouse Click Ability Disable

I have a 1. 2 year-old daughter who likes to discover my laptop whenever possible. Thing is, that she is able to disable the mouse click ability just by sweeping over the keyboard; e.g. 30-40 keys pressed for a minute or two. Things do work, mouse moves, but when i go over something, it doesn't show any change or reaction for the mouse. It is if the mouse doesn't exist in the same reality as the computer -> a ghostly mouse.

It sometimes goes over in couple of minutes. Other times it stays until i restart the whole system. Today i tried ctrl+alt+del and at first there was no mouse activity either, but ~10 seconds it started working again. Any tips? How to fix-it or know the specific reason. P. S. Windows 7 pro x64

Aero Right Click List Problem

I've just noticed that after i used aero incompatibility program and windows automatically changed my scheme to basic, and when i closed the program (macromedia flash 8, just don't know how to use newer version :'( ) and windows automatically change my scheme to aero, now the problem comes, after i click on any right-click list, a command i clicked still displayed, i've tried restarting explorer, not working, but it works if i re-change windows scheme and still, the problem persist. I presume it'll have something with system process and if rebooted, it'll gone but, i rarely reboot windows (usually, hibernate) if there's any better solution, please tell me, i'm in no hurry, thank you very much and, sorry again

Here's some screenshot that might help:

P. S. The problem comes just once for each time i change scheme. (Meaning it shows only one place. )

Whenever I Click Any Video Online The Browser Freezes

I have windows 7 professional and whenever i click any video online the browser freezes and only way to close it is shut the program down as it just freezes up and program says not responding. It does the same thing in both firefox and microsoft explorer. I am not trying to watch it with any unusual media players and it does the same thing even when i went directly to youtube and tested opening any movie as i figured youtube is the most common video site/file format so if i cant open youtube i have a problem.

I bought this computer 1 month ago and haven't installed any media players and the only software i installed/updated since purchase that runs thru the internet would be acrobat, picassa, quicken, and filezilla ftp. I have the most current updates versions of microsoft windows 7 os, windows explorer, and firefox . What is going on ?
