Taskbar is Duplicating Running Applications Icons!

My Windows XP taskbar has been strangely miss behaving recently!
Whenever I open a new window, the taskbar will show another duplicate icon next to it on the same taskbar. The same thing happens with folders, running programs and browsers! In other words, I am getting two icons for running applications or programs on my taskbar instead of getting ONE.

However, I noticed that I have two segments for running programs on the taskbar when unlocked.

Please help me to solve this annoying problem.

Thank you…

Strange indeed,
Not so sure what might be the cause for this,
but it is always recomanded to check that none of Windows files are damaged
(start - run - sfc /scannow)

Run Anti Adaware program:

Microsoft

Spybot-S&D!

Lavasoft

Never harms to run Antivirus, you can run Online Scans these days

Panda

Trend Micro

Symantec
