Default Windows 7 taskbar icons staying highlighted

This has always been a problem since we've had this computer and it's really annoying. When you hover over the taskbar icons, the last one you hover over will stay highlighted and the tooltip shows too. If that program has multiple windows open then the window selector thing will also show up. I am always restarting the Explorer process and it even remains at around the 4th last used in my Run box.
