Re: missing ALL icons including the start button
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

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.
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.
you might have change the location of the start menu or called task bar, try to press the windows logo key on the keyboard to show up the task bar. if it shows up you can drag it to the bottom of screen. if it is locked and cannot be dragged, right click on it and remove the check mark on lock the task bar.
Hello you can enable this option(showing volume control in task bar).This is how you enable it.You click on Start button and continue to the Control Panel item of the Start menu,then in the Control Panel window find Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices section, click on it.Then click on Sounds and Audio Devices.In the Volume tab (top line of buttons) you will see a check-box"Place volume icon in the task bar" put a tick on it and click Apply.Now you are done and you should see the volume icon:)
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.
