Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I opened my computer I was shocked because there is no taskbar I tried pressing window key start menu doesnt open I tried regedit gpedit.msc and tried to find some edited setting but unluckily I found nothing...I need an urgent response because I couldnt access my startmenu to adjust my volume control.. Advance thx to someone who could really help
Press CTRL+ESC. If your Taskbar magically reappears, then it's probably simply been resized too small, repositioned somewhere you didn't expect it, or perhaps it's beneath another application that's running full-screen on your computer.
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.
In some cases that may not work, so we fall into the various approaches on fixing it.
If you don't have the Windows Shell running, you can still run programs as I described above: use Task Manager's File, New Task (Run...) to run the programs we need. I often like to run a command prompt, "cmd", as a quicker way to type in and run other programs from there.
My first recommendation is to run an up-to-date anti-virus and anti-spyware scan. Both viruses and spyware are known to occasionally interfere with the Windows Shell.
Then, I would run the system file checker, That will check for missing or damaged files in Windows, and repair or replace those that it can.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del when it stops at Blank Desktop.. Go to "New Task", Type "Explorer" at "Run".. if the problem occurs, you may have to repair your windows... follow this step...
Take your WINXP Bootable Installation Disk, Boot it, Repair your system (First Repair Option) using repair option.. Thats all.. Your previous settings will not be disturbed.
