I've disabled GPU acceleration (anyway not supported on Intel GMA, I got a warning message at startup.
Now, the task bar is hidden directly on start.
OK, I've isolated exactly what causes this problem on my machine in the hope that this can help track down this bug.
(By the way, disabling GPU acceleration has no effect on my machine to make the windows task bar disappear, no matter how many times F11 is pressed.)
The problem occurs when you set your screen resolution to 150% in windows 7, which is necessary on my laptop if I have any chance of seeing small print on my micro-screen. I had another program which was exhibiting this same bug, an older version of ACDSee. It had the same problem, full screen viewing always had the Windows task bar visible. After choosing ACDSee's compatibility tab I deselected "display scaling on high DPI settings" and boom, the windows taskbar bug disappeared.
Unfortunately, on the 64 bit version of Fast Picture Viewer, the "dispaly scaling on high DPI settings" button is greyed out on the compatibility tab, since it's a 64 bit program. I'm quite sure this is where the problem is happening.
