No worries.....!!

shutdown the computer.......... switch it back again and immediatly keep tapping the key F8 on the key board....
you would see an option called Advanced boot options..
-> choose an option safe mode using arrow key's and push enter.
-> wait until windows comeup...
-> click on start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools and System Restore...
-> Under system restore window choose the date where in your computer was working fine.. and click on next to perform system restore....

your problem would be fixed... and no worries... your documents will be safe

Lost start button and icons


Are you saying there are no icons on yourdesktop and the start menu is missing? If so try this: Click Ctrl+Alt+Del to get the task manager to come up. Press andHold each key (Ctrl+Alt) until you hit the Del key, then you can release them.

When the task manager opens up click the Processes tab. You can click theImage Name column to get them in alphabetical order. Look forexplore.exe, if you see it listed click it once to highlight it then click theEnd Process button at the bottom right portion of the task manager window.

Next click File at the very top portion of the task manager window on the leftand select the option New Task (Run). When the Create New Task window openstype: explorer.exe and press OK. Your items will start populating andappearing on the desktop.

My laptop is HP Compaq 6720s Volume, Power, and Network notification icons are missing from taskbar. They cannot be re-enabled from the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties as they are disabled or grayed out....


This is a simple fix in windows vista or windows 7. hit the keys CTRL+ALT+DELETE simultaneously and release. The screen that comes up click on Start Task Manager.

In the task manager window click on Processes Tab. Look for explorer.exe and highlight it and click End Process. Click Yes to stop it. When it is gone from the list, click the Applications tab and click on New Task. In the run box that pops up, type in explorer.exe and click OK or hit Enter. Once your task bar and icons repair look in the system tray area by the clock and the missing icons should now be there.

The icons that were at the bottom Windows desktop have migrated to the LH side of the screen. How do I undo this?


If this is an xp, you need to first unlock the task bar. Right click on the task bar, click properties, and uncheck Lock The Task Bar. If it is already unchecked, all you need to do is drag the entire task bar back to where you want it by holding the left button, then release when the taskbar is where you want it to be.
