The Case of The Jumping Windows 7 Start Menu

Well, the Windows 7 Start Menu, like all Windows start menu’s is fixed to the left side of the taskbar near the Start Button.

Click on the Start Orb and the Start Menu pops up there itself, attached to the taskbar.

On very rare occasions when I have clicked on the Start button, and maybe, moved the cursor a bit, my start menu has got detached from the taskbar! Click on the start button again –  the start menu will close! Could it have been the Start Button Changer?

Fortunately, I was able to capture its screen-shots on two occasions.

I have been unable to reproduce this on demand, in spite of several attempts, so I don’t know how or when it exactly happens!

But I found it intriguing and was just wondering if anyone else had faced this situation!

If you have experienced this, or have some light to throw on this ‘case’, please do share below in the comments section.
