Windows–Auto hide taskbar stops working

For a while I used to get an issue where the taskbar I had, that was set to autohide would suddenly stop auto hiding.

This was bloody annoying, only recourse would be to log off or restart.

However the other day I went searching for a solution and discovered a little program someone has written to sort out this problem.

Turns out the task bar stops hiding because it thinks it is still displaying a balloon tip. So by displaying another balloon tip and then having this close properly it fixes the problem.

The program, when run, just displays a balloon tip for a few seconds and then closes. The task bar is then reset and the auto hide functionality works. Hoorah.

The program is called Task Bar Slapper, available here

It can easily be scheduled to run as a scheduled task and fully automated. GSCopyPro also comes with an open file agent which can copy files that are locked/ opened by other processes.
