Win xp laptop won't run programs fro Start menu

Either your system is really corrupted, or you've got a virus. The only think that comes to mind is to go to task manager, find explorer.exe and click End Process, then click File > New Task (Run...) and type explorer.exe. This will reload explorer and possibly fix the issue.

Bar keeps going away

Do you mean the taskbar? Right-click on any empty spot on the taskbar, select "Properties," then deselect "Auto-hide."

The task bar disapeared

run you antivirus program

If CTRL+ESC didn't make it come back, then the program that displays the task bar most likely isn't running.

That program is often called the "Windows Shell", but it's really "explorer.exe". It's the program that not only displays the Taskbar, but also responds to the CTRL+ESC sequence.

The workaround: press CTRL+ALT+DEL to fire up the Task Manager. Now on the File menu, select New Task (Run...). Type in "explorer" and press OK. That should restart explorer and re-display your Taskbar.

hope this helps

Hope this will help... Your response is very much appreciated...

I need win xp drivers for a toshiba l300 laptop that previously had vista on it. I have gotten win xp to load but I need some drivers

Click or copy and paste the link below to your browser address bar. It will take you to the XP driver section in the Toshiba Support Page, when it comes on the drop down menu for all operating systems and choose XP with SP2, and SP3. Your drivers will be there.

Tool, taskbars and text all shrunk to half normal size

Did you try Control Panel and Display, Setting tab and adjusting the resolution by moving the slider? That should take care of it.

My taskbar does not appear when I am viewing web pages

It sounds like you have your task bar set to auto hide. I'm not too familiar with this brand of laptop but if you are using windows you should be able to follow these instructions to fix this. If you know how to get to the control panel (start menu) and click on appearance and themes there should be a task bar and start menu icon there. Click on that icon and select how you want your task bar to be displayed.
