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.

Internet explorer task bar missing


Try pressing the left Alt key alone. Does the menu bar appear?
Try right-clicking the area where the menu bar is supposed to be. Try different spots around the upper part of the window, eventually you should see in the context menu an option to turn on the menu bar.

It was suggested that I find my task bar in order to correct the


probably you just messed up the settings ...if you still can click on start ...just right click near the user name ..and properties will appear..click on it ..and you have the settings choice for both the task bar ..and the start menu ...I really hope you will handle it ..
if not ..just try to make a system restore task ..and assuming that you no longer have the start ..just click on my computer ..than in the side task bar (left ) you will have tasks and other places...there look for control panel ..and click on it ..
be sure the control panel is on the category view..(it has a task in the same left task bar) ..and in the category view click on performance and maintenance ...in this moment you have a second task in the left bar named system restore..click on it ...and follow instructions..choose to restore to an earlier point ...than choose one highlighted date in tha tab ...that you know for sure the computer was fine ...and proceed..If you are lucky and the system was not affected by another kinda virus...and is not a case for reinstallation...your system will restore itself after the reboot to an earlier setting stage ..

try using your menu key on your keyboard. its next to the Ctrl key, that will bring up your start menu which shuld also show the task bar. right click on the task bar and click on properties. make sure "auto hide Task bar is not checked. and lock task bar. you may also have lowered it below your view. try moving your mouse pointer down at the bottom of the screen and see if your pointer turns into an arrow., if it does hold the left mouse button and move it up untill your task bar shows.

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.
