Missing Task Bar Button - Keyboard Does Not Appear

Oct 14, 2006

I started up my computer and the taskbar at the bottom is missing (start button, taskbar, and icons). The start menu comes up when I hit the Windows Button on my keyboard but the taskbar does not appear. The start menu also pops up when I hit Ctrl+esc but without the taskbar. When I open up a program a little icon is created at the bottom and I can click through those, but no taskbar. I tried to see if I could resize it from the bottom but the resize arrows don't come up.

Unblock Files In Zip

Mar 18, 2007

I am running Windows XP in Parallels virtual machine on a mac because I need it for a college project.I have a zip containing what should be basically text files, for a programme called tLearn.The problem is, Windows would only let me extract some of the files, and some vital ones I need for my project are blocked.I tried following the instructions about right-clicking and clicking 'properties'- not straightforward on a mac- but the box that appears dosn't have tabs at the top, dosn't have a button to click for 'unblock'.It SEEMS that my alternative-right-click (macs dont have 2 buttons) is working, but if it's not, is there any other way to access the dialogue box I need? Also, the file I am trying to move/open/unzip dosn't seem to have an extension- it's just called 'code' and should contain just some stupid lists of letters and numbers I need.

Unblock A Website On AOL

Apr 6, 2007

Hello everyone. I hope someone can help me with this. I am trying to log onto a website that I was on yesterday and it is work related. However, tonight I am unable to do so on my desktop computer. I keep getting page not found. I also have a laptop and the site does show up there. My server is AOL and I have a Windows XP computer. My gut tells me when my desktop updated, perhaps my work site became blocked somehow by the firewall? I have no idea how to ublock it if that is the case.

Missing Shut Off Button And Start Menu

Nov 11, 2007

I'm no pro regarding computerstuff what so ever, but I know my ways aroudn at least. But the other day I got a whole bunch of abd viruses I think..from where I have no clue. I run Nod32 and it probably missed this ones. So anyway, I noticed I had some kind bad stuff called Vundo trojan. is that correct? So, I managed to remove (I think) that with Spyware doctor.BUT, the problems I had stared before i removed it. I have one account, my own, with admin. rights. BUT the "Shut off" button is missing in my startmenu and I cant start the Windows Task manager, because it has ben blocked by the..administrator? BUT, thats me? So, how can this be?It's really annoying and I have noo clue what so ever on what to do here. I tried to create a new account, and that worked fine. But that would mean alot of extra work with mailprograms and stuff.

Unblock Any Operation From The Administrator?

Jul 9, 2005

I created another user on my XP home edition machine to isolate "business"

Logged on as my alter ego, I needed to open a Visio file. It asked for the master disk, and I proceeded to install (even though Viso is already installed for me to use as the prime user). I got a message that the Administrator had blocked this kind of activity.

How did I block it? And more important, how do I unblock it?

Start Button Taskbar And Desktop Icons Missing

Jun 21, 2005

Whenever I start up my computer, I can no longer see the Start button, the Taskbar or any of my Desktop icons. I have tried system restore but there were no valid restore points, and re-installing Windows from the CD has not solved the problem.Has anybody got any ideas about how to fix this? The system also seems to be running more slowly, and on some occasions it will automatically restart about 10 minutes after I have turned it on. I've run a virus update (with updated virus definitions) but it has not found anything.

Unblock An Option In The Properties Of Files Download

Sep 5, 2009

When i click a download link, i get the prompt:Save File, Cancel. i click save, and immediately the download will be cancelled, as i have checked in the 'download' tab (Firefox3.5)i can click retry and it will actually download it though, (to my desktop) and as it is downloading i can see the filesize increasing, but as soon as it is done downloading, the filesize becomes 0 bytes.also, when i right click the file, to the bottom of the properties tab, there is an "Unblock" option"Security: This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer. Unblock" When i try to open the file..."C:Documents and SettingsOwnerDesktopccsetup223.exe is not a valid Win32 application"..which makes sense, the filesize of it is 0 bytes.

Change / Remove Button Missing In Add / Remove Programs

Dec 3, 2008

I have tried previously to uninstall my HP Officejet G85 printer from HP Pavilion a1130n running XP Media. There is no Change/Remove button in Add/Remove Programs but the program is there, 150 MB, and the file suggested on the HP website for uninstalling older printers from XP produces a message that it's "unsupported" can't remember exact verbiage, been a while since last tried. Even reinstalled in the hopes that a message would come up to the effect "this program is already installed, do you want install to remove it prior to completing this install," but it just installs the printer again with a number after it ... I'm up to "hp officejet g series - 3."

Restart Button For WinPro SP2?

Dec 8, 2005

I have reviewed the following thread and discovered that the solution does not work on my WinXP Pro SP2 computer.Solved: XP shut down window Jag11 in post#3 of the thread and the original poster applied this fix which worked for the original poster, CactusJack: Control Panel>User Accounts Click Change the way users log on or off, tick the Use the Welcome screen, then click Apply Options.When I click on Start, there are only two buttons at the bottom: Log Off and Turn Off Computer, and no green icon for Restart. The green icon can be found when the Turn Off Computer icon is pressed and appears to the right of Stand by and Turn Off icons in the displayed window (Turn off computer) at the center of the screen.Is there a fix for this problem - i.e. how do I get the Restart icon back at the botton of the Start button display? Or, is this how WinXP Pro SP2 is normally, and not considered a problem?

It worked well until several months ago and then, all of a sudden, it stopped functioning. I can get it to hibernate by using Start-Turn Off Computer-Stand-By, but the "Sleep Button" does not work. I did some Internet research and one site indicated that it might be a driver problem.

Disable Right Mouse Button

Sep 2, 2005

I work for a library and all I want to do is completely disable the right mouse button in Windows XP on public access computers (but allow me to login as administrator and enable/disable it again). I figured Windows would have something like this built in, but it doesn't. I figured there would be a freeware program that could do this, but I can't find one. Some mouse drivers allow you to disable the right mouse button, but not for the mice I have. Do you know of some obscure Windows XP registry setting that would allow me to disable the right mouse button (in all contexts), or of a simple freeware utility that would allow me to do this?

RUNDLL Box Blocking 'Start' Button

Dec 23, 2005

After booting up OK, any attempt to click on the Start button leads to a box appearing labelled RUNDLL. Within this box the letter 'r' is repeatedly and continuously printed. The box can be closed but the error recurs if the Start button is clicked again. At the same time there are intermittent 'bleeps' from the speakers, and clicking on ANY icon on the desktop opens only the recycle bin! If you try making a search with Google again the letter 'r' is repeatedly generated in the seach box.

Repeated scans with (updated) Norton Antivrus 2005 and with Ad-aware have not helped. Strangely, at some times the computer behaves completely normally.

Volume Control Button On Task Bar

Jan 22, 2010

I am using XP Pro and up until recently when I clicked on the volume control button in the task bar on the lower right hand side of the screen, the button would open up and I could raise or lower the volume with the slider and right click on the button to get an idea of how loud the volume had been increased or decreased. After hooking up a USB turntable and installing the accompaning "AudaCity" software the only sound I can get when I click on the button is the "mute" sound even though there is no check in the "mute" box. It doesn't matter how high or low I raise the slider, the sound is the same; mute.

That really would not be a problem in as much as I am still able to play all .wmv, .wav, .mpeg, and .mp3, etc. files and the volume control button works to control the volume on all these files. The problem is that I was able to record a song from two different albums and save it to "my music" folder, but when I tried to record another song the following day the turntable would not record. I discovered it was not working because there was no sound and thinking perhaps I had muted the PC I checked the volume control button and discovered then there was no sound when I clicked the button.
