I want to restore my volume icon


1. Back up the Registry by creating a restore point.
2. Go to Start > Run (or Windows-key + R), type in regedit and hit OK.
3. Navigate to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cla sses\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Wi ndows\CurrentVersion \TrayNotify.
4. Delete the values IconStreams and PastIconsStream.
5. Open up the Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc), go to the Processes tab, select explorer.exe and click End Process.
6. Open the Applications tab and click New Task at the bottom-right of the window.
7. In the message box that pops up type in explorer.exe and hit OK.
8. Explorer.exe will reload, and the missing icons should now be back in the system-tray where they belong.
9. Then if the volume bar isnt there, go to taskbar properties (where the volume was gray) and simply tick the box.

this should work, did for me!

I have lost ALL of my taskbars!! How do I get them back?


A program called explorer.exe controls the display of your taskbar and desktop icons. If for some reason it goes missing (you may have killed it using Task Manager, for example, or something more sinister like a virus has deleted it from your processes), then try this first:
  1. Open Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Del, then click Task Manager).
  2. On the Applications tab, click New Task at the bottom right of the window.
  3. Type explorer.exe, then click OK.
If nothing sinister caused it to disappear, it should all come back as it was and you can stop panicking, breathe a sigh of relief, and continue working.
If that doesn't work, then try this:
  1. Open Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Del, then click Task Manager).
  2. Go to the Processes tab.
  3. Click on the Image Name column header to sort the list alphabetically.
  4. Find all explorer.exe processes - select each, then click End Process for each one.
  5. On the Applications tab, click New Task at the bottom right of the window.
  6. Type explorer.exe, then click OK.
Are you using snagit, try to uninstall it and then check if you still get the errors. If you donot use snagit then there would be another error.

If you cant access control panel use the "Windows Key+R" on the keyboard which opens the run dialog and type in 'sysdm.cpl' which opens the control panel.
You could also try to restore you windows using System Restore and select a date of the backup when the computer was working well.

Make sure you do a complete virus scan with a good antivirus with updated virus definitions as it could be a virus too.

I cannot see my toolbar it is blacked out


Did you tried to restart explorer.exe? Open the task manager(ctrl+shift+esc), go to "Processes" look for explorer.exe, click it then click "End process". After that go to "Application" tab. Click "New task", write explorer.exe and click "ok".

My windows explore has stopped running i have no desktop


To get back the explorer, press [Ctrl]+[Shift]+[Esc]. You'll get the Task Manager. Click on "New Task" (Bottom-left of the dialog box). Enter "explorer.exe" (without quotes)in the text field and press enter. You'll get the explorer back.
Do a virus check and have a disk check for errors, so that this won't happen again.

My desktop keeps disappearing


Hi!

Remove unnecessary programs installed on your computer. This will help you save space and then more room for special processes for system performance.

Next, I advise you to run a full computer scan. This will help eliminate viruses or spywares on your PC and I think which is also the culprit to your Desktop suddenly dissapearing. Viruses are nasty and they will do everything to bug your computer down.

Explorer.exe keeps restarting


You seem to have a classic case of "malicious software" loading under the guise
of a common [executable] program. Get yourself a 1Gb USB stick and access
the web from a more stable computer.

Download this utility and unzip the files to the USB stick.

Boot your computer into safe mode and right-click the taskbar and click

Task Manager. When the new window opens click explorer.exe then click

End Process......then YES. Next click Applications and then New Task.

When the little box appears click Browse. In new window click My Computer

and double-click the drive letter of the USB stick and run a-squared in

Deep Scan mode. When the scan is complete restart your computer.
