Tune Up Utilities 2009 and the visual style is windows 7 7057 by mufflerexoz

note this does not happen when I launch the apps from quicklaunch, shortcuts in windows and 8start launcher
thanks for the quick reply
After experimenting I found out that the bug can only be recreated by first launching a full screen app.(in my case a game called titan quest/osu/stepmania I tried 3 different times) and then launching the app. in maximised app. such as web browsers will cause the top part of the orb not within the taskbar to be chopped off.
All apps. were launched from slider dock.
I have tried it with the original vista theme and the bug does occur. Using the full glass firefox mod I found out that the maximized program is on top of the top part of the orb which makes the orb(above the taskbar) look like it is chopped off
Basically the top part of the orb is hidden behind the application but isn't actually cropped, if you reduce the application the orb is still full?
another thing, the application you launch, is it already maximized or do you maximize it after launch?
Those detail might help me to find the bug.
The app is launched maximized. I also noticed that the bug occurs more frequently after launching and quiting a full screen app(eg games)
thanks for the info, there's a few things I will try to see if it will help solving this problem.
I think I have found what cause the bug.
Apparently the transparency used to make a windowless application with the autohide feature seems to conflict with each others.
Can you try to off turn the "AutoHide when launching an application" option and see if it also fix your problem on your PC?
For the next version I will fix the transparency feature, because I found out that it cause multiple bugs in WPF applications.
