Hello all..... this happened just yesterday, i turned around while my laptop
was booting up from having been hibernated, to find the taskbar has moved to
right of the desktop, in a vertical fashion.

This is driving me nuts.... i can't find any settings to change it, are
there any??
If not what has happened, and how do i fix?? Could this be adware??

Right click a blank area of the taskbar, uncheck "Lock the Taskbar",
then click on the taskbar and drag it to the bottom. Relock it.

Although by default the task bar appears on the bottom of the
screen, it can be on any of the sides you prefer it on. To move
it from any side to another, simply click on an unused part of it
and drag it where you want it. Be sure to click *within* it, not
on the edge; clicking on the edge and dragging will resize it



If it won't move, it may be locked. In that case, right click on
it and uncheck "Lock the taskbar," then try again.

No, almost certainly it happened because you accidently dragged
it there without realizing it.
