how to reset taskbar


i would like to ask your help how to reset my taskbar

I came home and I saw all my taskbar's quicklaunch displayed... when I was trying to adjust the width of the quick launch area.. it appears to be stuck and can't be adjusted.

Also, when programs or other window are running... it doesn;t show on the taskbar. When I uncheck the QL... the whole taskbar disappears.

Please help me fix this... thanks
