My lower toolbar of the main window w/ systray has disappeared. Short of rebooting, how can I regain it?
<CTRL><ESC> does not do it!

Are you referring to your taskbar?

If it is disappearing, that means Windows Explorer crashed.

To start Explorer again, hit the following keyboard combination: Ctrl + Shift + Esc

Under the Applications tab, click New task. Type explorer and click OK.

Check to see if auto hide is turned on for the task bar

Right click on the start button - go to properties - taskbar tab
See if auto hide is checked. If so, clear it & click OK
In the beginning there was the command line.

Does this also happen in Safe Mode? Try it via hitting F8 after post screen appears the screen that shows you all your devices and how much RAM you have.
