try to go in to command prompt via the task manager. go to file>new task and enter CMD in to the box and press OK.

Please enter
SFC /scannow
in the black window and press enter. Allow this to run. it will fix system files and will attempt to recover damaged or deleted files.

A completely missing task bar can be caused by a corrupt registry entry.

r1pz,

Were you experiencing problems that made you run your antivirus and Malwarebytes? If you think you were infected, you should go to the malware forum - your symptoms could be caused by an infection. Follow the advice I've posted below, but skip the Malwarebytes section since you've already run it. If you have the log from it, please post it in that forum, along with the other requested logs, and explain the symptoms you're having.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.
