I am having trouble getting Windows to start up properly. Yesterday I turn on my machine and noticed it took a VERY long time for windows to complete it's start up process. Once finished I noticed that several of my shortcut icons were blank, and no longer worked. I started up windows explorer and found that my D:\ was missing. This is while looking at the 'My Computer' page.
I rebooted my machine, and waited for the start up process to finish, opened explorer and noticed that the listing for my D:\ had returned, but there was no information listed under either of the columns 'Total Size' & 'Free Space'.
Not knowing what to do, and having to leave, I shut down the machine. When I started the machine today Windows started up normally, but I can't get the taskbar to come up. I have tried it on all of the logins that I have, and it's the same with each log in. The desktop comes up, but there is no taskbar (no it's not hidden). I also can not get Windows explorer to open, so I have no way of knowing if the D:\ is there or not, I'm assuming it is not. Just in case your wondering how I am trying to open Windows explorer, I am using the hotkey combo (Windows key + E).
Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can get all of this fixed?
Thank you in advanced,
These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter...
I go somewhere to get something, and wonder what I'm here after.
