Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

Windows xp desktop and taskbar are being hidden

it could be a virus if not try to right click on the something with your mouse and see if any menu pops up. you can also try this ctr+alt+del and you come up in a window if im right (if not then not) but then go to file and or start taskbar manager(in windows 7 ) file> run new task> and type in explorer.exe I think this should do some thing of visual contact. if not. I think the problem is deep. my next mind think is try to save some important files and prepair to install windows all over again. im guessing you have a very slow computer and a semi-professional person is really needed. unless you know what your doing.

I don't think your problem is windows genuine validation.

Anyway..onto your issue..
You should download the following

Why is my OS is very very slow working???

Here's a few tips you can try to fix your slow startup problem. First of all you want to disable any programs that are in the startup menu that you do not absolutely need. There is no sense in waiting for programs to load that you don't use on a regular basis. Or if you are not sure which one is slowing your startup. You can disable them one at a time.

If that did not help, you can disable your Windows sidebar. You'll also want to remove any icons from your desktop that you do not absolutely need. The same goes for your task bar and quick start menu. All of these will slow down your boot time.

Check to make sure your anti virus program is not scanning at startup. Some programs are set to scan. When windows boots, by default. You will also want to do a full anti virus scan to make sure you don't have a worm or any other type of virus that is working in the background slowing your operations down.

The biggest reason for a slow boot time is a corrupt or damaged Registry. The registry will become corrupted from installing and uninstalling programs. Perhaps you have loaded programs onto your new Vista computer and were not compatible and then uninstall them. They leave behind files, which Windows tries to reference on startup. Since they are no longer on your computer. Your system goes through a long search trying to find them. You need to clean and optimize your Windows registry to eliminate any bad or orphaned files.

You can do this manually if you are an experienced computer technician. It is not recommended for most users. Windows does not have a built-in tool for repairing, cleaning, or optimizing your registry. You will need to download and run a third-party registry repair program to do this.

A good piece of software that will do this for you with a click of the mouse is a wise investment for any computer. You will have it for years to come, and can schedule it to do weekly maintenance. This will keep your PC fully optimize and running fast. It's like giving your computer a tuneup.

1. Wait the long 5 minutes for your computer to boot. Once you're on the desktop, go to the start menu. Select "run..." Type "msconfig" (no quotes) into the box. The Microsoft system configuration utility should pop up (if you're on Windows XP, Windows 2K users visit:

Once this handy tool pops up go to the "Startup" tab...
You will see a list of every process that runs on system startup. Some of these should look familiar; if you know what a program on this list is and you know you don't want it loading on system startup, uncheck it. There will probably be items on the list that you don't recognize. Any of the things on this list can be googled; you'll find a page which explains what a process is, and if it's vital to the system or not. Anything non-essential or unwanted should just be unchecked. Without having to load all that additional garbage your aging computer should boot up much faster (depending on how many processes you disabled). When you exit the msconfig utility you'll see a message about restarting now or later; you are not required to restart right after you do this.

Sounds like you are running out of ram for the program. Try upgrading to some more ram in your system. Windows xp recommends minimum 512k of memory to run.

Morning Ashley,
It looks like that you have got problems enough to cut through the "red tape" and buy a all together new computer.
Maybe it is a perfect New Year present to you, as those two problems demands money and knowhow.
Your BIOS need a Flash (new software).
BIOS are an acronym for basic Input/output System. It is the boot firmware program on a PC, and controls the computer from the time you start it up until the operating system takes over. When you turn on a PC, the BIOS first conduct a basic hardware check, called a Power-On Self Test, to determine whether all of the attachments are present and working. Then it loads the operating system into your computer's random access memory, or RAM.
The BIOS also manages data flow between the computer's operating system and attached devices such as the hard disk, video card, keyboard, mouse, and printer.
As you may have noticed, your main problem lays I your hard disk, if it has a defect, the BIOS will react (in your case crash), and normally it would come with an error like error in memory address 000a2100000a2320.
The program that checks this lay in an EPROM (Erasable, Programmable, Read Only Memory) that hold this startup procedure, - it needs to be "reprogrammed". This EPROM can be flushed with a new program, but if anything goes wrong while flushing, you need a new BIOS, and it can be a challenge to get a new one.
You may think that a new hard disk may solve your problem, and it might, but then you have to reinstall you Windows software again, as a new hard disk is empty. And taking the chance that you may get upset, I don’t think installing Windows is within your field.
Now, if you go and buy a new computer, do get a model with either Windows XP or multi boot with Vista and XP, and when startup, choose XP. Microsoft has admitted that Vista Is almost as big a mistake as Millennium.
I realize that this is not what you expected, but as you trust me enough to go direct to me, I´d rather tell you the truth than make you start out a dead end road.
Marry Xmas to you and yours.
NB. I have noticed that you try to solve problems yourself – pdon’t Ashley
