Try to restore the computer to the date when it was working properly or else simply put your bootable XP CD in the CD ROM, restart, and when the installation options screen comes up just enter 'R'(repair) after the F8 command input...............sodeep

I couldnt sign in its shows I/O error how can i solve the problem


To resolve this problem, please make sure that you are using the latest version of Skype.
However, if the same error happens again, follow these steps:
  1. Quit Skype. If you can see the Skype icon in the taskbar (at the bottom right of your screen), right-click it and select Quit. If you cannot see the Skype icon, use Task Manager to close Skype: press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and click Start Task Manager. In the Applications tab, select Skype and click End Task.
  2. Make sure that you can see hidden files.
    On Windows XP:
    1. In Windows Explorer, go to Tools > Folder Options.
    2. Click the View tab.
    3. Under Hidden files and folders, tick Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
    On Windows Vista / Windows 7:
    1. Click Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Folder Options.
    2. Click the View tab.
    3. Under Advanced settings, tick Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
  3. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the following folder:
    On Windows XP:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\\ApplicationData\Skype
    WindowsVista / Windows 7:
    • C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Skype
    Where is your Windows user name.
  4. Locate the folder with the same name as your Skype Name and delete it.
    This will delete your chat history. To save your chat history, copy all the .dbb files and the 'chatsync' folder to another location. You will be able to transfer them back (described in step 6, below). Please note that we cannot guarantee your entire chat history will be restored.
  5. Restart Skype and sign in with your Skype Name and password. If you forget your password, these instructions tell you what to do.
  6. The folder you have deleted will be recreated. If you saved your chat history files (described in step 4, above) transfer them back into the folder with the same name as your Skype name.
If you still have problems, please contact Skype Customer Service.

There are several other programs that suggest that they can fix the taskbar but this is the simplest method that I have found so far that actually works.

Our toshiba laptop turns on but we only have our background pic with no programs on screen


you might have hidden your icons by accident. Try right-clicking and in Windows XP, "arrange by" and make sure there is a check-mark by "show desktop icons"
In Vista and Windows 7 rick-click select "view" and make sure that "show desktop icons" is checked.

If this does not help, make sure that Explorer is started (you should have the taskbar, start buttons, etc. in view of the screen. If not it might indicate a problem with windows itself.
