How come my taskbar disappeared after I changed my screen saver?

by on December 28, 2008

Q: I have a laptop also from Christmas. It is a Toshiba laptop (Model Number:PSLC0U-01S01F) running Windows Vista.

My problem is that about two days ago the Taskbar Menu basically disappeared. I don’t know if I did it but I don’t think I did all I changed was the screen scaver and the background. I don’t know what happened.

    Did you download the screen saver from the internet or use the ones that came with Windows Vista?

    If you did any downloading you might want to consider looking at http://www.askageek.com/2007/11/28/desktop-icons-and-taskbar-disappear/ as others have had similar issues but they are all virus related, which might be your problem if you are downloading items off the internet without virus protection.

    Your best bet, if you don’t have much personal information on the computer yet, would be to restore Windows Vista from the restore CD that came with your computer.
