The Lenovo ThinkVantage (TV) Toolbox is a product of IBM Think systems. This tool intends to provide users with advanced support by monitoring the computer system's health, security and performance as well as providing the necessary solutions when problems arise. Various display problems are known to affect the Windows Taskbar. ThinkVantage icons occupy most of the Taskbar, which forces the Taskbar to expand and corrupts the alignment of other application icons. Removing the toolbox from the Windows Taskbar is a quick process. If problems persist, consider uninstalling the toolbox software.
