Taskbar keeps moving even though it's locked.

Hi everyone,

The taskbar on my pc has been acting rather strange lately...
Keeps moving from bottom to the right side even though it's locked.
I mean I set it or move it to be at the bottom, then it moves to the right side.
NOTE: Stardock's objectdock is not installed on the computer.

Thanks

Hey you know what? ...
I found out what was the problem...
a rogue called BrowserProtect.exe
I run several anti killers, and nothing
was getting rid of it, not even combofix,
neither malwarebytes, then I noticed in
proccess an unknown double proccess,
BrowserProtect.exe but could be deleted,
neither uninstalled, then I installed unlocker,
and finally that was the end of it, now the
taskbar remain locked and is not changing
position or location by moving mo more.
weird in all my years this is the first time
I seen this issue, sorry for the way I'm
wryting as I'm replying from a mibile device.

Hey ashwin, thats a nice tip from microsoft,
too bad I did not tested out, but you know what, the problem with this rogue
or malware is that even if you move the taskbar to a position and then locked,
this malware was gonna changed back to that possition anyway, so I think that
in this case the best way was getting rid of the malware. but it took you time
helping me here, so I will accept your answer, thanks ashwin.
