Hi, hope someone could help me here.
The start menu and bar along the bottom of my screen is not responding and some of the shortcut icons on the bottom right are not loading as well as the clock staying at the time from when the computer was turned on. So far i have run registry mechanic, adaware, spybot, Norton, bit defender but none of these have fixed the problem. DOes anyone have any suggestions as what to do next?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

One option to try is to run the edit on kellys - korner Line 117: Restore Taskbar and Start Menu.
See the top of the page for information on running the edit.

This option involves modifying the Registry, so be sure to back it up and know how to restore it should a problem occur.

You need to be aware that modifying the registry can be dangerous, one wrong entry can cause damage which may involve reinstalling the operating system. This is why it is so important to back up the registry prior to making changes in the registry.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
