Blank Taskbar Icons

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey, my GF's comp is exhibiting weird behavior..

Some of the icons that usually populate the taskbar are blank. When you mouse over the blank location, you can see the surrounding area light up as if there were actually a button there, but there are no functions when clicking, etc. Also, functionality doesn't seem to work on the visible ones when clicking, etc.

I'm about to run a few virus scans, but anything off hand that would be glaringly obvious to check? I tried disabling/enabling grouping and messing with system icon behavior to try to get it to reinitialize but the issue still exists.

Thanks

Edit: Oh, Windows 7 Pro x64

Are you referring to the icons for open windows or icons on the right, next to the clock?

Does this happen with all icons?

It happens with all icons as far as a lack of functionality.
There are 4 or so ones that populate but don't do anything.

Other wise, there are placeholders for about 10 other icons that only light up when you mouseover and don't serve any other sort of function.

Ran a scan with MSE and came up clean.
I looked in processes and there wasn't anything super dodgy.
