I've recently upgraded from Outlook 2003 to 2007 and for some reason Outlook is now grouped with Windows Explorer when the Windows Taskbar need to group things:

Weird Windows Taskbar grouping

I don't want it to do that! Is there anything I can change to stop it?

If you don't want anything to group together you can try this:

Right-click "Start Menu"->Properties->"Taskbar" Tab (at top)
->uncheck "Group similar taskbar buttons"

I know this is more of a "for the time being" solution, but if you aren't running to many apps this can work just fine as a permanent solution.

TweakUI, one of the Power Toys for Windows XP, includes some options for managing taskbar grouping. I'm not sure it will fix that problem, but it's worth a look.
