    What about sfc /scannow If your Explorer.exe is corrupted this may fix the problem and restore the task bar. Run your task manager (Ctrl / Alt / Delete) Click file (new Task Run...) and type sfc /scannow

    The forum editor automatically inserts a space into any line that has no spaces at position 75 for word wrapping.
    When posing reg keys and other long lines that have no spaces, wrap the test in CODE tags - Highlight the text, then click the # symbol at the upper right of the editor window (you must be in advanced mode for this)
    example:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy
    Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    12345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890
    Code:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy
    Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    12345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890

    "not solved as much as formatted the entire drive and installed ubuntu, everything's fine now,"

    I'd call that a solution! (/me pats Ubuntu, DSL and Sidux machines)
