Hello,

You cannot delete the icon from the task bar as it only displays the start up programs running on the computer. I have given the steps below.

Click start, than click run. In this box type "msconfig" without quotes.
You will see the list of startup programs. Uncheck the ones related to the Simple center Media.
Click Aply, Than click close, than click Restart computer now.

The program will not load automatically and you would not see the icon in the taskbar.

I am sure this will help. Please update me on the same.

Regards,
Sammy

Task bar at bottom with font size on it has gone


The task bar is an important part of the Windows experience. Not only does it contain a variety of information including what time it is and how much battery life is left it's the way most Windows users open programs and documents. As such, the task bar disappearing is a stressful thing, but fixing this problem on your own is possible.

Auto-Hide Sometimes you may think your task bar has disappeared, but it's really just been set to "auto-hide." Move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and see if it pops up automatically. Then check all four sides of the screen. If the task bar was simply auto-hiding, disable this feature by right-clicking the task bar, clicking "Properties" and unchecking "Auto-hide the Taskbar." b> Reboot b> If your task bar disappears, and auto-hide isn't the culprit, the first thing you should do is reboot your computer this fixes the problems in most instances. Only one problem: because your task bar disappeared you can't access the "Start" menu in order to shut down the computer. Instead press "Alt," "Ctrl," and "Delete" at the same time and press "Restart" in the window that pops up after doing so. Your computer should restart, and in most cases your task bar should come back when it restarts. b> More Options b> If rebooting doesn't fix cause the task bar to reappear, your computer might have a problem starting explorer.exe, the program that displays the task bar and desktop icons in Windows. Press "Ctrl," "Shift," and "Esc" at the same time to bring up the System Manager. Then click "File," followed by "New Task (Run)" and type "explorer.exe" in the dialogue box that pops up. You now have your task bar and desktop icons back. Reboot to see if they stick around after rebooting. If not, repeat the process in the above paragraph. When you have you task bar back click "Start," then "Programs," then "Accessories," then "System Tools" and then "System Restore." Restore the computer to a time when everything was working fine by clicking that date on the calendar. Reboot to see if this fixes the problem. If none of this brought back your task bar permanently it may be time to run a repair install. Change My Task Bar b> In Windows operating systems, the taskbar shows your currently active windows and programs, shortcuts to your favorite programs, the time, your volume control, active programs and the "Start" button. You may want to change the taskbar so it has a different look or to customize it to suit your needs when using your computer. Windows XP users have fewer options than Windows Vista or Windows 7 users, but all operating system owners can make changes to the taskbar.

Right-click in your taskbar. Left-click on "Lock the taskbar" if it is currently checked. Otherwise, click back onto the taskbar. Click on any empty area of the taskbar. Drag the taskbar to the position (bottom, top, left or right side of the screen) you desire, and release it. Re the taskbar by moving your cursor to where the taskbar ends. Your cursor will change to a two-way arrow. Left-click and drag the taskbar until it reaches the you want. Move your cursor over the series of separator bumps between the Start button and the Quick Launch menu, and the Quick Launch menu and the active programs section of the taskbar, to alter the of the Quick Launch menu and the active programs area. Right-click the taskbar, and left-click on "Lock the taskbar" once you've completed the changes you wish to make. b> Change Taskbar Options b> Right-click on the taskbar, and left-click on "Properties." Modify the taskbar settings so that it appears the way you like. You can decide whether to show the Quick Launch menu (a series of icons for your most commonly used programs), to show thumbnails for your active programs in Windows 7 and Windows Vista and to group similar active programs, and to automatically hide the taskbar or to always have it on top of other windows. Click on the "Notification" tab in Windows 7 or Vista to modify the way the notification area to the far right appears. Stay on the taskbar tab in Windows XP. Hide inactive icons, and decide which information to show, including the clock or the volume, power and network icons in Windows 7 and Vista. Click on the "Customize" button to specify which programs or notifications should always show, never show or grow inactive with disuse. Click on the "Toolbars" tab in Windows 7 or Vista to specify which toolbars you wish to see in the taskbar. Your options will vary according to the programs you have installed on your computer but may include the Quick Launch, address bar and links toolbars. Click the "Apply" button, then "OK" once you have made the changes you desire. Hope this helps.

Installing a computer game


you have to put the cd in the cd drive. then, in your task bar (which should be in your bottom right hand corner), you need to either click the expand button to see the icons in your task bar. you should see a loading cd icon; click it. that should then bring up a prompting screen where you should agree to install the game.....

Why is my yahoo mail now in the right hand corner of the page?


If I understand your question correctly, your Yahoo Mail shortcut is on the right side of your desktop and has moved from the left side. If this is the case,
1. please right-click anywhere on your desktop, View, and make sure that the "Align icons to grid" box is checked.
2. also, you can right-click again on the desktop and Sort

If this isn't what you're asking, perhaps you're asking why the Yahoo Mail icon is in the lower right task bar? If so,
1. you can right-click on the task bar and depending on which operating system you have, click Properties and Customize.

Thanks for using FixYa

PC Display after booting


Okay this is a flaw with XP. what you need to to is when that happens. Wait for the screen to load and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and that will bring up task manager. Under the file button on the top right hand corner and select New Task (Run...). Then the run box opens up and type in the box EXPLORER.EXE that should show the task bar and shortcut icons. If you need any more help just ask me.

All The Best,
