My screen goes completely blurry when I move my taskbar to the top of the screen. I've got the latest graphic drivers for my card, etc but can't figure out why it's doing that.

Also, WLM pops up every time I minimize firefox or any app.

To address the issue of your screen going blurry when moving the taskbar to the top of the screen, and Windows Live Messenger (WLM) popping up every time you minimize Firefox or any other app, we can troubleshoot these problems separately.

### Issue 1: Screen Goes Blurry When Taskbar Moved to Top
When your screen goes blurry after moving the taskbar to the top of the screen, it might be related to a specific setting or configuration. Here are some steps you can follow to resolve this:

1. Check Screen Resolution Settings:
- Right-click on the desktop and select "Display settings."
- Make sure the resolution and scaling settings are appropriate for your monitor.

2. Update Graphics Drivers:
- Even though you mentioned having the latest graphics drivers, it's worth double-checking if they are truly up to date.

3. Disable Dynamic Contrast:
- Some monitors have dynamic contrast settings that can cause screen issues. Check your monitor settings to disable dynamic contrast if enabled.

4. Adjust ClearType Text:
- Go to Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display.
- Click on "Adjust ClearType text" and follow the instructions to fine-tune text readability.

### Issue 2: Windows Live Messenger (WLM) Popping Up
Having Windows Live Messenger (WLM) pop up every time you minimize Firefox or any other app can be annoying. Here's how you can address this:

1. Check Startup Programs:
- Ensure that Windows Live Messenger is not set to launch automatically when Windows starts.
- Right-click on the Windows taskbar, select Task Manager.
- Navigate to the "Startup" tab and disable Windows Live Messenger if it's listed there.

2. Check Messenger Settings:
- Open Windows Live Messenger and go to the Settings.
- Look for any options related to minimizing behavior and adjust them accordingly.

3. Uninstall or Reinstall (if necessary):
- If the issue persists, consider uninstalling Windows Live Messenger or reinstalling it to reset any configurations causing the popup behavior.

By following these steps, you should be able to troubleshoot and resolve these issues effectively. If you encounter any difficulties or need further assistance, feel free to provide more details for tailored support.
