Taskbar Trouble

By Leram Cain
Mar 28, 2007
  1. I give up, really I do. My taskbar decided one day to hide the application toolbar. Since then I have been using Task manager to close and change to other open Programs. What is it? A missing dll? It can't be Spyware nor a virus, I check for those DAILY.

    Just because you check for malware daily, doesn`t necessarily mean your system isn`t infected.

    Go and read this thread HERE, then post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.

    Regards Howard :)

    The good news is your HJT log is clean.

    When you say the application toolbar, do you mean the quick launch toolbar?

    Right click your task bar and select toolbars, make sure the quick launch toolbar is ticked.

    I wish

    No, when you minimize a window, it's supposed to appear on (in?) the Taskbar. Somehow mine decided it didn't want to do that anymore.

    P.S. My Laptop's a virgin, ergo, clean

    Click start/run and type sfc /scannow into the run box and press the enter key. Windows will scan for any missing or damaged OS files and replace them as necessary. You will need to have your Windows cd handy.

    See if that helps.

    Regards Howard :)

    Edit: I`ve just come across this TOOL HERE. maybe it`ll help.
