Hey everyone,

For some reason just about every time I start up my PC, I cant see all my programs that are running in the taskbar, ive tried right clicking and changing them all to "Always Show" in the cstomized notifications window box when I right click, but it never works! :tazz:

Has anyone eles got any other ways of fixing this?

Thanks

Hi bobbobagan...Welcome to G2G!

Try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's

Try a System Restore...restore to a time before your problem began.

Click Start and point to All Programs then to Accessories then to System Tools and click System Restore

On the Welcome to System Restore page, select "Restore my computer to an earlier time" (it should be selected by default), and then click "Next"

On the Select a Restore Point page, click a bold date on the calendar to the left...go back a few months if you can, and then click "Next". A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click "Ok".
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click "Next". System Restore will restore the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restart the computer.

When the System Restore Restoration Complete page appears...Click "Ok".

Let me know how it goes...

Hi

Some times in XP files get corrupt or missing, the good thing is it is easy to fix if you can borrow a CD you can try this.

Go
Start < run and type sfc /scannow (note the space between the sfc and /)

It will ask you for you Windows XP installation CD so have it ready. This will gives you a blue bar it can tack some time to finish (any where up to an hour) when it gose reboot. It fixes any files that have become corrupt.
