XP Taskbar Dissappears After Startup

  1. I am having some trouble with my Windows XP taskbar.

    I am running an old Dell Inspiron 5100 with XP home. When I boot the computer the taskbar pops up for about 30 seconds, then dissappears until my next reboot. This occurs both when the taskbar is in auto-hide and normal mode. My system tray alerts still show, but I cannot see the system tray.

    I have attempted to adjust my taskbar settings to no avail.

    Does anyone have any advice that would help with this?

    Thank you!
