Why were start menu and task bar lost?


Hi B.G.R.,

Have you tried

Pressing ALT or F10 in your keyboard to make the Menu Bar temporarily visible. If you want it to be permanently visible, go into View > Toolbars > Menu Bar, or right-click the Navigation Toolbar (the Reload button, for example) and select Menu Bar.
If this doesn't help, right-click the navigation toolbar, select Customize... and click Restore Default Set. If it doesn't appear right away, try pressing ALT or F10. You can go into View > Toolbars > Menu Bar to make it permanently visible, or right-click the Navigation Toolbar and select Menu Bar.

Tip

Games Explorer link does not work in Windows 7 or Vista.


To open the Windows Vista games folder, you'd normally click on the Games Explorer link in the Start Menu.
You have to ensure that it appears there in the first place.
If it doesnt appear, Click Start > Rt Click > Properties > Start Menu tab > Customize > Select Games > Display as a link or Display as a menu > OK > Apply > OK
Incidentally, if you type Shell:Games in Vista's start menu search bar and hit enter, then too the games folder will open.
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); But if the Games Explorer folder does not open in your Windows Vista, here is what you may try.
Type cmd in Vista's start menu. When cmd appears as a result, rt click on it and select Run as administrator.
In the elevated command prompt, type
regsvr32.exe gameux.dll and hit Enter. This will re-register the ganeux dll file.
It should help.

I have a acer laptop ASPIRE5520G .My dvd drive does not appear in my computer folder so that i can't use it. Please give me some advise. Thanks.


Hi,

Below is the steps to resolve the issue:

CAUSE: Software that is not Windows Vista capable (such as printer software, CD burning software, and games) may have modified the registry to cause the optical drive to not function.

RESOLUTION: Method 1: Remove the program that caused the issue: If you know which program might be the cause of the issue or the last program you installed, remove the program.
  1. From the Start menu, click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, click Uninstall a Program.
  3. In the Programs and Features window, click to select the program to remove, and then click Uninstall/Change.
  4. In the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
  5. Follow all onscreen instructions to complete the removal.
  6. Shut down and restart the computer after removal is complete.
Note: Determine whether the computer is working properly. If the issue is resolved, do not load this software again because it will cause the optical drive not to function again. Instead, contact the software manufacturer for a Windows Vista™ capable version.
If removing the program did not resolve the issue, use System Restore. Method 2: Use System Restore to restore to a date before you installed the third party software.
  1. Close any open programs.
  2. From the Windows Vista™ default Start menu, click All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then click System Restore. Note: System Restore can also be opened by typing Start Search keyword: rstrui.
  3. In the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
  4. In the System Restore dialog box, click Recommended restore, and then click Next.
    View Picture Note: If a different restore point is needed, select Choose a different restore point, and then click Next. Select a day and time from the list when the computer was working properly, and then click Next.
    View Picture
  5. In the Confirm your restore point dialog box, click Finish.
    View Picture
  6. In the System Restore dialog box, click Yes. The computer restarts and make the appropriate changes.
    View Picture
  7. After the computer returns to Windows, in the System Restore dialog box, click Close.
    View Picture
Note: Determine whether the computer is working properly. If the issue is resolved, do not load this software again because it will cause the optical drive not to function again. Instead, contact the software manufacturer for a Windows Vista™ capable version. Method 3: If System Restore did not resolve the issue, manually modify the registry.
  1. From the Windows Vista default Start menu, point to All Programs, Accessories, and then click Run.
  2. In the Run dialog box, type: Regedit. Click OK.
  3. In the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
  4. In the Registry Editor window, locate and then click to select the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control/Class/{4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
  5. From the File menu, click Export.
  6. In the File name dialog box, type: Savedkey, and then click Save.
  7. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type UpperFilters file, and then from the Edit menu, click Delete. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
  8. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type LowerFilters file, and then from the Edit menu, click Delete. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
  9. In the Registry Editor window, from the File menu, click Exit.
  10. Shut down Windows® and restart the computer.
Thanks and regards,
Anil.B.R

I want driver of shro am-400 for win vista plz do needfull


Hi there,

Well sorrsy to say but there is no win vista driver's for this model, anyway there is a way to use windows xp drivers in windows vista, follow the below steps -
1. Click the "Start" menu in the lower left-hand corner of the Windows Vista screen.
2. Select "Run" from the Start menu.
3. Type "msconfic" in the Run box. Click "OK." A window will appear that lists all of the programs scheduled to run when Windows Vista is turned on. Uncheck all unessential software programs. Be sure to leave critical programs checked, such as antivirus and firewall programs. Click "OK."
4. Click the "Start" menu and select "Restart" to reboot the computer.
5. Open "My Computer" (located in the Start menu or on the Vista desktop).
6. Double-click the "C:\\" drive. Find the installation directory for the Windows XP program or device that you wish to run in Windows Vista. The installation directory is usually given the name of the program, the program's manufacturer, or a shortened version of either of these two options.
7. Right-click the program or driver. Select the "Properties" option in the pop-up menu that appears.
8. Click the "Compatibility" tab in the window that appears. Check the box next to the heading that reads, "Run this program in compatibility mode." In the drop-down menu, select "Windows XP." Click "OK" to close the window. The program or driver will now operate in Windows Vista in Windows XP compatibility mode, allowing the driver to function as it did in Windows XP. Note that the Windows XP driver will not be able to take advantage of any of the new features in Windows Vista while it is running in compatibility mode. You can also follow the below link for more help -

Programs won't show up on pc


Hi,

It sounds like there could be a program hanging preventing you from using the computer properly.

A quick way to resolve hanging problems with Vista (especially if your not computer savvy) is to perform a system restore.

To do this click on the orb (start menu), in the search bar type restore and then hit the enter key. A system restore window will pop up. All you have to do is choose a date that is before any problems occurred and take the computer back to that date. You may have to wait a while if the computer is still hanging.


Regards.

You may have to use your RECOVERY disk that came with your system and re-install your operating system. I believe you can do it and still keep all your files you currently have.
