    Okay I have a weird problem at My A+ Class (I go to High School for half a day then to an A+ Class the second half) Someone tripped over my mouse and yanked it from the back of the computer and the mouse went flying (I had to replace the mouse that's how bad it was) Well Somehow when I restarted my computer the bottom tool bar, where start and everything is is missing. I've tried everything I could think of, Installing a custom theme, messing with control panel. And I still cant get it back. I also had a docking station at the top that disapeard I really have no idea how to get it back. Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Was it a USB mouse and is it the same in Safe Mode?

    Yes it's a USB mouse. and I haven't tried it in safe mode. I didn't really think about it.

    Check in Safe Mode but it will most likely be the same....was the PC ON at the time of the accident?

    So does it look normal and you can navigate around OK in Safe mode....apart from it looking a little different?
