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
