You do not want to do a system restore in order to get your task bar to come back after it disappears like that. There is another solution down on the bottom of that page that is an easier fix and does not require that you restore your system to an earlier point. You can also hit your Windows key on your keyboard, and it should bring up the Windows start menu, go to the run... command and type in that box explorer.exe. That should work too.

Hang up internet explorer not responding


If you use Internet Explorer you may experience issues where the browser freezes, hangs up and stops responding.


Although many things can cause the browser to stop responding, if the problem persists there are a few troubleshooting techniques that you can use to fix the problem.


Troubleshooting Internet Explorer may require you to perform a few steps or several, depending on the cause of the problem.

Click "Start," choose "All Programs" and click on the "Windows Update" option.

A new window will appear.


Click the "Check for updates" link on the left side of the window.

Windows will connect to the internet and search for updates for your system.


Click the "Install updates" button on the right side of the window.

Windows will automatically download and install any updates it finds.


Restart your computer, if prompted.


Delete Temporary Internet Files


Click "Start" and select "Control Panel."


Click the "Network and Internet" selection then click on "Internet Options."

The Internet Properties dialog box will appear.


Click the "Delete" button beneath the "Browsing history" section.

A new window will appear.


Place a check-mark next to "Temporary Internet files" and click "Delete."

Allow the computer to delete the temporary internet files then close the Internet Properties dialog box.


Remove Problematic Add Ons


Click "Start" and enter "Internet Explorer" into the Windows search bar.


Click on "Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)" when it appears in the list.

Internet Explorer will launch with no add-ons running.


Click "Tools" on the right side of the browser and select "Manage Add ons."

A pop up window will appear.


Click on "Toolbars and Extensions" beneath the "Add on Types" section on the left side of the window.

A list of add ons will appear on the right side of the window.


Scroll through the list of installed add-ons and locate third party add ons that you've recently installed.

Note that you can look at the "File date" for a date of when you installed the add on.

Look for add ons that you installed at approximately the same time you began experiencing issues with Internet Explorer not responding.


Click on any suspected problematic add-ons and click the "Disable" button at the bottom of the window. Close "Internet Explorer (No Add ons)" and restart the browser normally.


Verify that disabling the add-on fixes the problem.

If not, repeat this section and disable another recently installed add on until you fix the problem.


Hope this helps.

Farmville doesn´t load on my computer and lost all my neighbours, but if i try it with my friends login on my computer it works!


1. Try deleting the "cookie" of the Web Browser.

If you are using the Internet Explorer then check this Link for the instruction to delete the cookies.

If you are using the Firefox then click on the option "Tools" in the menu bar and select the option "Clear Recent History" or press the"CTRL+SHIFT+DEL" keys to delete the cookie.

2. If the issue persists try resetting the Internet Explorer.

When you reset Internet Explorer settings, all add-ons and customizations are deleted, and you basically start with a fresh version of Internet Explorer.

Check this Link for the instruction to reset the Internet Explorer.

This should resolve the issue.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!
