Hello,

I have a strange problem. I have DSL so i leave my computer on, recently when I go away and come back later in the day my taskbar at the bottom of teh screen is gone. I cant click start, cant see the time etc... I can click on icons on my desktop and everything still works, however if I want my taskbar back i need to restart the computer. Any suggestions? is this a virus? I am running win XP I have a sony Vaio 1.8 ghz with cd/rw, dvd rom, and 256mb of mem. I would appreciate any help.

Thank you

You havent customised your toolbar (Taskbar??) to auto-hide have you? If you have and haven't realised, drag your cursor down to the bottom of your screen and up it pops. To change it, right-click.......properties.....and uncheck the 'auto-hide taskbar'. Hope that helps.

Lee,

Nope. I thought of that myself, but I havent put it on auto-hide. It is something else.
