I had Black XP and WInStep installed for visual add-ons. It was not that cool so I uninstalled it. Ever since my start menu is black and it continues to revert to non-hidden even though I continue to select auto-hide. And when it is in auto-hide it continiously blinks on and off every like 30 seconds.

I un-installed the aforementioned programs but the probs persist. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

THanks

oh yea, running Vista x64 ultimate.
