    right click a blank area of the taskbar > check to see if the taskbar is Locked .If it is unlock and release that shortcut.If it goes away , re-lock and have a nice day.
    If not , try a re-boot.

    And if that doesn't work it may be a virus or some kind of spyware running, run a full virus check , if its XP run msconfig from the run command and see what is set to start at start up if you don't recognise it, stop it running.

    i guess it did kinda work...sometimes that window isn't there when i log onto my computer. yet, when i open a new somehow block that blank one from appearing on the taskbar?? i'm not sure, but it seems like it. unlocking it doesn't work. reboot...i think it works..but other times it appears again. and i did scanned my computer...there's nothing. and for msconfig, everything was ok. still confused...heh
