But, I've got no start button, how do I do that through the task manager?

If you press ctrl + alt + delete keys together you get task manager, click file then new task, type sfc /scannow then press enter

I can't get it to work, I type it in and a little black window (I believe it says something about system 32) flashes for about half a second.

How else could I get it to run? Safe mode with command prompt maybe?

Never mind that last one, I can't read, I was leaving a space between the "/" and "scannow".

Yeah!, I rebooted and It appears to be alll better.

A system restore window came up and the the start bar and icons came back.

They don't pay you guys do they? I'm assuming they probably frown upon tips too, my suggestion is that you guys find a charity, and put it on the front page.

This is the second time Geeks to go has saved my butt. I'd definetly donate to a worthy charity

Thanks a bunch.
