Starting yesterday when i restarted my computer after editing my group police i find my computer is no longer displaying a task bar so i restart explorer and it seems as if it is running in classic shell...

What OS are you running?

Have you tried system restore? or....

Do you have access to the registry editor? (type "REGEDIT" into the run box)

if so then go to this key :

there you should see settings for windows explorer and the taskbar.. (a number "0" = setting disabled and a number "1" = setting enabled) just look for the settings related to the taskbar
the settings you are looking for are probably these:

"NoSetTaskbar=1," REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (1) "
"NoTrayContextMenu REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (1)."

Just right click the setting and chose "modify" and change the "1" to a "0" or "delete" the key all together

(I am running windows 7 and all three subkeys under "policies" : EXPLORER , MOBILITY CENTER AND SYSTEM are all empty with no policies set)
better no policy then the wrong

if you do not have access to registry then "system restore" option is best .. (if you have somehow edited the group policy preventing you from running system restore then try booting into safe mode and going to the Hidden Administrator account.. and running "system restore" from there... hopefully since that account is usually not used it will hopefully have all of the group policy settings still at their defaults and allow you to restore the system

NOTE: System restore is best option because it replaces the entire registry with a back up copy and all group policy settings are contained within the registry and will be fully restored back the way they were.

if system restore is unavailable then a manual restore operation can be done as a last resort as long as the system restore points have not been deleted... but that is a complicated process that requires putting your hard drive into another computer and manually moving the right files to the correct locations (definitely an expert

I can not edit my account information.

Hi there, I would like to clarify If you are the administrator on the computer your trying to edit your account

If you are the administrator of the computer, and If your computer is part of a network at an organization such as a school, government agency, or a business, your organization's system administrator might have disabled or even removed certain settings by using Group Policy. Group Policy is a feature of Windows that lets system administrators manage users' access to Windows features. If you suspect that Group Policy is preventing you from changing a setting that you need to access, contact your system administrator.


If your computer is not part of a network, a user with administrator privileges might have modified Group Policy on your computer to remove access to the settings. In this case, contact the users who are administrators on your computer to modify the settings you'd like to change.

How to enable registry editing

Method 1 - Using Group Policy Editor If you are using an edition of Windows Vista (Windows Vista Business, Enterprise and Ultimate editions) which includes the Group Policy Editor, follow these steps:
  • Click Start, type gpedit.msc in the Search box, and press ENTER
  • Go to the following branch:
User Configuration | Administrative Templates | System
  • Double-click Prevent access to registry editing tools
  • Set it as Not Configured
Important: If it's already set to Not Configured, set it to Enabled and click Apply. Then repeat the steps and revert the setting back to Not Configured. This removes the registry based policy if set already.
Method 2 This method should work in all editions of Windows Vista.
  • Download reg_enable.vbs attached at the end of this article, and save it to Desktop
  • Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
  • Switch to your Desktop directory by typing the following command, and then pressing ENTER:
cd /d %userprofile%\desktop
  • Then, type the following command and press ENTER
wscript.exe reg_enable.vbs
  • Type EXIT to close the Command Prompt window.
If everything worked fine, the DisableRegistryTools policy should have been removed by now. See if you're able to launch Regedit.exe now.

Can not install CD for my Mp3 player

You are probably signed on as a "guest" - every computer running windows XP or higher (Vista included) considers every user as a "guest" or an "administrator". Restart your computer, and sign in as an administrator. I don't know how computer saavy you are, but my real name is "Cor-y K-o-t-g-n" (I left out letters on purpose to protect my identity), so the login account that I created for myself when I upgraded to Windows XP was named Cor-y K-e-t-g-n- I also assigned it as an administrator account. My firends/family that use the computer are "guests" - if they log in to their particular names, they can use the computer, but they cannot install new software. I hope this helps a little.
