Do a major clean up o your computer

A virus and spyware update and scan

a Disc Cleaning

Delete all your cookies

Run your registry cleaner if you have one.

let me know if you do not know how to do any of this and I will provide more info.


You probably have either a virus or spyware. If you do not have virus control go to www.trendmicro.com/housecall and run a free virus scan and then follow their instructions to remove anything that they can't.

How to make the taskbar reappear when it disappears in Windows


Sometimes on a computer running Windows, an application will crash or an unstable process will lock up the system, and out of nowhere the taskbar that runs across the bottom of the screen will disappear. The rest of the desktop and all of your icons will probably still be visible -- it's only the taskbar that is gone. Without the taskbar, you can't access the Start menu or view the open programs in your system notification tray.

To get your taskbar and Start menu back without shutting down your computer, hit <CTRL><ALT><Delete> and then (depending on the version of Windows that you are running) choose the appropriate option to open the Task Manager. (In Windows XP Professional, for example, there is a button labeled "Task Manager".) When the Task Manager window appears, select File from the menu bar and then from the drop down menu click on "New Task (Run)". Type "explorer.exe" into the text bar and hit <Enter>. Windows will sort of "reset" itself, and the taskbar and Start button will reappear. (This may take a minute.)

Whatever caused the system to become unstable in the first place could easily happen again, so at this point it's a good idea to save any unsaved data, close all open applications, and then shut down and reboot your computer. If the same problem happens again, make a note of which programs you were running when it occurred, as it may be a resource conflict or compatibility issue that's causing the problem.

Disable XP Shutdown


There may be times when you want to make sure that XP can't be inadvertently shut down. You can use a Registry hack to disable the normal Shut Down. Run the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. Create a new DWORD value named NoClose with a data value of 1. Exit the Registry and reboot in order for the change to take effect. You won't be able to shut down Windows in the normal manner from now on; you'll have to run Task Manager by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete or right-clicking on the Toolbar, choosing Task Manager, and then using the Task Manager's Shut Down menu to close Windows. If you want to reenable normal shutdowns, delete the NoClose value.

When I go to START and SHUTDOWN instead of shutting down like it use to do, I get a message instead that announces the programs that are still open. I would just like for it to shut down like it use to do.


Hello,

you are getting the message because probably you did not close opened programs or web page before you attempt shutting down.

Check your task bar and make sure all opened programs/application are closed before you shut down your computer.

This is all you need to do for your computer to shut-down in its normal way.

Also to be sure all programs are closed, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete on your keyboard and task manager icon will pop-out. Then you can close any opened program from there.

Take care.

When an application hangs like that, there are a couple of options you have to shut down the system. The safest is to open the task manager, if you have mouse control, by right clicking on the task bar and choosing task manager. In the menu bar across the top of the task manager you'll see an option to shut down the computer, which if chosen will probably prompt you to end the program that's hanging. There's also an applications tab, which will allow you to select the problem program and end the task, which will sometimes enable you to free up the system without shutting down. This option should be used judiciously, however, and only when you have already tried other conventional means to end a program from within the program app itself. If you can't access task manager from the taskbar, you can also press ctrl + alt + del at the same time, and the task manager windows should come up...
Finally, you have the option to perform a hard shutdown by holding the start button down until the system closes itself down. This should only be used in dire circumstances, when you've given the system a chance to finish whatever it's processing and other means aren't working. A shutdown like this doesn't give the system a chance to save its settings and you risk losing your work and otherwise confusing the workings of things, so it's best to save this for when all else fails.
Once you get the system to start normally, you can use the built-in windows event viewer to look at what warnings or errors were encountered when the system froze up, and try to diagnose the cause and correct the problem....
If there's a problem with file corruption, for example, this may be found and or corrected by running checkdisk on the system...etc.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

You have to click the Start button and choose "Shut Down " and click the mouse on that. If that does not work, try pressing Ctrl + Alt+ delete simultaneously. What they call the task manager will come up. choose Shut down and click on it. It should shut down
