    My taskbar now refuses to hide. It won't autohide, and I can't even force it to hide. What can I do short of reinstalling the OS?

    Try unchecking "Autohide" and checking Lock the taskbar. Re-boot. Then try setting it the way you wish.

    Thanks, Joe. I had tried that approach—it certainly seems like an obvious solution—but nothing seemed to work. But last night I found a solution on the Win7 forum. I used Task Manager to shut down explorer.exe (process), then re-start it. It worked.

    Glad you got it worked out. Thanks for posting back.
