Well... press alt+ctrl+delete and the task manager comes up. You can 'run' programs from that.
wow, so you can. never knew that.

ok, press CAD, (select task manager if you have a win2000 implementation of CAD), click the Applications tab, click "new task....", then type in "regedit" and press enter.

#Dr Peper, what's the worsst that could happen...#

No, it won't. It's an inbuilt thing, and will restore your Pc to full functionality.

no you dont, they tell you how to do it. you just have to delete the key [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Micro soft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Expl orer\StuckRects]

Do the F8 method, that I suggested.

By selecting the 'Last known working configuration' option, all it does is revert your settings to a state when it was working, in other words, with the task bar.

The 'Safe Mode' option, loads your PC up with the minimal of drivers, and wont change any settings, this will allow you to hopefully see your taskbar and diagnose what the problem actually is. However once you restart the computer without sorting of fixing it, it will still be like it is currently.

I made this programme...I hope it works. Just click "Show Taskbar".

Virus scan and then unzip it first of course.
