Taskbar covering windows

I keep my taskbar up at the top of the screen, instead of the botttom, and let's say I open up a window, it "sneaks" either after time or the such "under" the taskbar, so it is difficult to move the window, without first moving the taskbar.  I keep my taskbar, always on time and never hiding.  Any ideas how to stop this problem?  Win95 wasn't that bad on this issue, as it almost always kept the window below the taskbar not under.  Anyone know how to stop this problem?

You Taskbar is set to be always on top, that is why it is "sneaking" above all your windows. Change settings (right click on the task bar) to auto hide, then it will appear only if you move the cursor to the very top of the screen.

I like my taskbar at top, not on autohide.  However, the windows sometimes go UNDER the taskbar, and it shouldn't.  I think there is a stand alone program to stop it from going under, but I forget what it is... any ideas?

Hi,

   This is what you are looking for:
