  2. It looks like the program you've installed is causing explorer to hang on start up. Try searching for an updated version of the program.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Give this a try. I`m assuming you`re running Windows XP/ME.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    Then, try system restore to before your problem appeared.

    i dun think i can log in using my user name...i tried that and it cant...cuz i think its under a domin my sch created...so they can upload installation files into our com without asking....dam them

    btw how can i find out what is the cause for the hang of my taskbar?
    it is 100% that the taskbar will hang every time i on my com and load into window and after the taskbar hang i cannot use my com anymore... T.T

    In that case, boot into safe mode under the admin account and do a systemn restore.

    Regards Howard :)

    A quick fix would be to end the explorer process and restart it. Ctrl+Alt+Delete, Processes. Right click explorer.exe, end it. File>New task, type in explorer.exe and OK it. Other than that, i have no idea.
