Shadow boxes in taskbar

By dborgia ·
Why when a program is closed, does it leave a shadow box (Gray with nothing in it) in the task bar and you have to click on it to get rid of it?

Shadow boxes in taskbar

Generally, you should not have to do anything. I've seen these boxes before though and the only "fix" I have found to to backup all your data and then fdisk and format the drive and start over. The only thing I can figure is that all the trash in the registry is finally catching up to the system speed and slowing things down too much such that windows do not close and disappear properly (until you click on it again). How's that for a run-on sentence?

There are probably many possibilities here, but these two have been demonstrated on my own LAN: if your computer uses an nVidia video board, get the latest driver set with memory management specific to your board; if you have the Pervasive? SQL engine installed, get their latest update for your particular application.
