All running programs are shown twice on my taskbar and i dont know why. I had this problem a few months ago too and what I did to fix it was go in the registry/HCLM/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS/EXPLORER/STREAMS/DESKTOP
There were 2 keys here Default TaskBar and Default Taskbar Personal. After deleting the 2nd key the problem was fixed. A couple of weeks later i had the same problem on my 2nd pc. I did same thing fixed again. Now after a couple of months same problem appears and no personal key to delete this time. So i just deleted the Default Taskbar Key and problem is fixed. But what do i do if it happens again? Why is this happening? is there any other way to permanently fix it? cause i've had it again on the 2nd computer as well now. And i dont feel like deleting another registry key
Here is a picture of my taskbar if it helps u

have you checked the 2nd PC to see what keys and values that has ?
do both pc's have same O/S , Applications and updates installed ....
and sorry , should have asked this earlier , if you right click on the taskbar and go to toolbars do you have the following entries :
Windows Media Player
or are there any extra custom entries
I doubt this is useful, the "answer" ins't even an answer anyway if you'd got the problem on Windows and needed help.
@dtl: Does your panel look like the windows taskbar in the image above? Are the programs doubling up in two distinct regions like (App A)(App B)(App A)(App B) or are you getting (App A)(App A)(App B)(App B)? You haven't just added a second window list have you?
