    Taskbar icon stuck in loading animation




    Any fixes? Before a fresh reinstall of Steam.

    Oh and sorry if this is in the wrong place, please move it if it is. Thanks.

    You need to restart your PC.

    Welcome to 8 Fourms! Sorry about that, I've been busy. Try running something in Steam that could use that loading icon or maybe ignore it.
    Hope it helps!

    Yeah, I've reinstalled. Run it. Whatever.

    It's probably something in the registry.

    I just hope when Win 8 comes out and I install that. This bug will be gone.
