For no reason at all yesterday, my Windows taskbar just dropped off the face of the earth. I tried dragging the cursor downwards until it changed to the "I", but that didnt work - I cannot figure out how to bring back my desktop taskbar across bottom of my screen. Please can someone help me?
thank you
Jan :thumbsup:

Try Kelly's Korner.

Restore Taskbar and Start Menu - #117 on the left.

As this is a registry edit you should backup the registry first.

A simple tool
No need for registry backups when using this tool

Also it is highly possible that you are infected with Malware
If you are the only one who's using the computer
I suggest to post a HJT log in the HJT forums :thumbsup:

To backup the registry I would use ERUNT. Go to this website, scroll down and click where it says Server 1 on the left and save the file to your desktop. Then go to your desktop and double click the erunt-setup file. Click through the various options and install the program. Then run ERUNT and follow the steps to backup your registry, it's pretty straight forward.

Now that you've backed up your registry you can try the fix I recommended in my first post.

The reason I recommended backing up your registry is that any time you make a change to the registry there is a small chance that it can screw up your operating system. As such it's always a good idea to have a back up. After you install ERUNT it is a good idea to make a new back up of your registry every couple of weeks or so.
