You could try fixing it through registry

note: before thinkering with the registry make sure to backup your important file a do a full backup of your system registry.

click on Start>Run

and type:

regedit

when registry editor appeared...right click on My Computer(on the right panel)and choose export(this will save a backup copy of your registry) and save it...

now..look for the fallowing registry key and delete it:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects

When you restart Windows, the taskbar is automatically recreated.

hope this helps...

^_^

My start menu button and task bar is missing what shall i do :(


Don't worry you can solve it very easily.
Please just follow the below steps and you will fix it.

1 . If you are moving your mouse cursor all the way down (or wherever you have placed your task bar by default), but it won't show up, try pressing the Window key, typically found between the CTRL and the Alt keys. You can also press CTRL+Esc and achieve the same result. If your Start menu pops up after performing either action, this is your chance to manually re size your Windows task bar, as you had probably minimized it by accident.

2 . In case the above step does not fix the issue, try launching the Task Manager by pressing CTRL+Alt+DEL. In the window that pops up, go to the File menu, click on New Task, and type "Explorer" or "Explorer.exe", without the quotes. This action will basically restart the main shell that allows you to see your desktop icons, launch the task bar and initiate most of the visualizations you see on your Operating System. If this does not do the job, let's move onto step three.

3 . Try simply restarting the computer, as this may be as well caused by an old, sluggish system begging to be restarted for various reasons.

4 . Now, if none of the above have worked, you may be forced to run an anti virus and spy ware application. It is recommended that you launch these programs from Safe Mode by simply pressing the F8 key while your computer is booting up (right before the Windows logo shows up on the screen). Some viruses and spyware are known to alter your system in strange ways, so cleaning it may be an appropriate solution, as you have nothing to lose by trying.

5 . If all else fails, you may have to resort to repairing Windows through your Windows disc. During this repair, all of your data/documents will be left intact, while Windows attempts to fix any system error or damage found.

Thanks .

Audio soun do not working


1. Check to see if you have the volume control in the "off" position in the task bar (speaker icon) bottom left Of the Windows screen.
2. Go to the "device manager" to see if the sound card is working properly. check for updated sound card drivers. (See the helps menu to get to the device manager found usually in the "control panel"
3.Some sound cards are integrated with the mother board and can stop operating. Therefore a replacement sound card is needed. PCI possibly.
Contact your manufacturer for a possible replacement mother board or you may have to purchase a usb sound card.

I HAVE A WINDOW XP HOME EDITION AND WHEN I START MY COMPUTER THE ONLY THING THAT COMES UP IS THE BACKGROUND. THERE ARE NO ICONS OR A BAR AT BOTTOM OF SCREEN.


the icons and the bar(task bar) at the bottom of the screen are enabled by the explorer.exe file

it starts automatically but in your case it is not starting

to start it when your computer starts and comes at the desktop, press alt+ctrl+delete button at the same time to bring up the task manager

when you do this a task manager shows up in a window

in task manager window click on file, it will be located on the top left portion on task manager

now click on "new task(run)"

this opens another window, in that window type
"explorer"
without the quotes "" and press enter
this will bring you icons and task bar at the bottom of the screen

My taskbar is gone.


I won't start laughing but this is a common problem

can you tell me exactly which operating system it is ?

in windows 98 that happened alot and a quick fast dirty solution was to reinstall

but a better solution is to hit your windows key ( the one with the windows logo on it ) your task bar should reveal it's location at that point. allowing you to move it back to it's proper location.

this is one of those times when you'll have a good laugh when you find it.

let me know what happens.

Desktop Error Message


Probably this is a spyware, use a good anti spyware or do the following:

Run Process Explorer (right click on task bar>task manager>Processes) and Kill the Following Processes:
wscript.exe
dxdlg.exe (kill this one first)

Run Autoruns and under logon tab, remove
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wscript.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\boot.vbs
Search for entries named wproxp and remove it

Remove the following files from your PC:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dxdlg.exe
wproxp.exe (Most probably in your system32 or windows folder)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\boot.vbs
