Yesterday when i turned on my computer all the icons on my desktop and taskbar were gone and the taskbar didn't work. I can't perform any windows key combos and i can see the unresponsive taskbar when watching videos on full screen on YouTube. I have tried many suggested solutions I found on the internet but nothing helped. I currently start everything manually in the start a new process window. When i refresh the desktop the icons on it appear but nothing changes in the taskbar. I can't access anything i minimzed. Every action like volume, battery life, etc. is also gone. Can anyone help me with this issue? I tried restoring my system but I couldn't because of some error in the system. I also don't have the CD with Windows 8 because it came with a laptop.
