Taskbar stuck to upper edge of desktop

Well, that’s my problem: the taskbar is stuck to the upper edge of the desktop, and when I drag it downward, it just gets wider till it covers the upper half of the desktop, then it stops. Any suggestions on how to get it back in its proper position?
[Windows XP SP3]

Stick cursor in the middle, NOT the EDGE to drag it, make sure it’s NOT LOCKED, right click to check thet “Lock the Taskbar” is UNCHECKED !!

What do you know? It worked!
Thank you, Alien69!
