    Task bar freezing


    At times my task bar stops responding and so do the minimize window, alter window size, and close window commands. If I use ctrl-alt-delete to open the task manager the problem goes away for a few minutes but it always returns. I've run multiple anti-virus scanners and found nothing. So far I've had this problem on three computers including one I just got Sunday and the only things the three computers had in common is a microsoft wireless mouse and a windows operating system. The computers were even manufactured by two companies.


    Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this and how to fix it?

    :)

    I just found out that the notifications window is the real cause of the task bar freezing problem. As anyone contacted Microsoft concerning this possibility ?
