Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
When you say "after u start the computer" you mean before you log in? The taskbar never shows up until you're logged in, so that's the way it's supposed to work.
If you've logged in and you still can't see the taskbar, it's possible that you've configured the taskbar to "auto-hide." To see if that's what's happening, move the mouse all the way to the bottom of the screen, and the taskbar should pop into view. Unless you've moved the taskbar to the top or side - check by moving the mouse all the way to each edge of the screen until you see the taskbar.
Once you see the taskbar, you can right-click either on the "Start" button or on the clock at the opposite end of the taskbar, and select "Properties" from the menu to turn off auto-hide (if you want to - some people like it once they're used to it). If you want to turn it off, pick the "Taskbar" tab on the Properties dialog, and uncheck the "auto-hide the taskbar" checkbox. Then click OK, and the taskbar should stay visible.
Hope this helps.
