What is the video card of your pc? Type lspci | grep Graphics in a terminal and edit your question, adding this info. – To Do Jan 23 '13 at 13:25
What do you mean, "taskbar"? Do you mean launcher? See this question for terminology. – Flimm Jan 23 '13 at 13:27

I suggest you to reset Unity.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:amith/ubuntutools
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-reset

Alternate way:

sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
dconf reset -f /org/compiz/
setsid unity

Hope this helps.
