    Hi pal, thanks, but by only starting the XP is "dialog startup" and once restarted, restore "normal startup" - actually without changing anything - did not solve the problem.. what did I do wrong?
    Another thing caused by a trojan qhos - already cleared: windows autoupdate is blocked now, I have found a "solution" as a repair.cmd, but after 2-3 restarts, the problem is there again.. any idea?
    Many thanks in advance!

IM box will not appear


The system tray (in short: systray, nowadays also called taskbar notification area) is the icon strip normally located near the right end of the task bar, next to the clock.
Some Windows XP installations show a peculiar defect in that some systray icons disappear or, rather, do not appear, when the system is booted and the user logs on. The problem is even more prevalent on systems with autologon. The most frequently affected icons seem to be the speaker icon (sound volume) and the power/energy icon.
This has nothing to do with the hide inactive icons settings. The defect shows up when you don't have any icons set for hiding.
In any case, please make sure for now that you haven't activated that setting. Right-click the task bar, click on Properties, uncheck the last check box. You can reactivate it later if all other problems are identified or solved.
Check your Startup folder and the starter registry entries through Start, Run..., type: msconfig, press Enter, to check whether the programs are really started at system start, or use Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) to see whether the processes are running.

No icons or tool bar on desktop at startup


In your desktop, Right click your mouse and properties will show and look for show desktop option. And then move your mouse to the bottom of your computer screen, if toolbar will show, then your toolbar is set to automatic hide. Change the settings in your Taskbar and Start Menu Properties and change there the settings, uncheck the auto hide task bar.

Hello
This can be hardware or software related...
If you can see the dock, it means that the system started up with success, but had a hard time to get your account running.
You should try these:
- Press the shift key at startup for 15 seconds at the startup chime). this will check your hard drive, and deactivate extensions. it will ask for your password.
- If you see your desktop, and the apple, then go to the apple menu - system preferences - accounts -startup items tab. Delete all the startup items
- If it did nothing, the you should try to boot from your OS DVD pressing the c key at startup, abd repair the disk's permissions here
- At last, reinstall your system, choosing the "archive and install" option when requested
Hope this helps

Icons and start upmenu bar absent


explorer.exe is what displays the icons and the startup bar on the screen so try opening explorer.exe from the task manager. Or if it is already running close it and then reopen it.

Hello,

You cannot delete the icon from the task bar as it only displays the start up programs running on the computer. I have given the steps below.

Click start, than click run. In this box type "msconfig" without quotes.
You will see the list of startup programs. Uncheck the ones related to the Simple center Media.
Click Aply, Than click close, than click Restart computer now.

The program will not load automatically and you would not see the icon in the taskbar.

I am sure this will help. Please update me on the same.

Regards,
Sammy
