Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Taskbar and start menu

I have a Toshiba Satellite L45-S7423, and was watching some music videos of Ricky Martin and other singers when finish realize now I can't access my taskbar and start menu. I dont know what wrong with it, besides looks weird, like everything was "moved" and some things looke doble. Now if I want to turn on or off my computer has to be by the botton close to the keyboard (manually), cause I click on the start menu and nothing happens...Can you help me? By the way, I have Windows Vista.

You can access Vista disk management (right click on computer from the Start Menu > Manage > Storage > Disk Management) and shrink your current partition and create a new one. Then install XP on that new partition. This is if you want a dual boot of both XP and Vista.

if you have the xp installation disk, you can do a repair...then hopefully it will recognize your harddrive long enough to be able to give commands to fix it.

You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
