Hello, I am not sure what went wrong but suddenly the taskbar at the bottom of the screen won't work, everytime I click it a bell rings and its frozen. Computer is fairly new so I haven't created any restore points yet. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your patience.

We are going to do System File Checker. I seem to think you have a Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) corruption.

System File Checker is a Windows utility to verify the integrity of Windows System Files and restores corruptions of Windows System Files. System File Checker is a software that is directly supported by Windows File Protection. Windows File Protection is not included in Windows Vista. Instead, Windows Vista has Windows Resource Protection. Windows Vista now can scan for and repair damaged registry keys. If any file changes are made to WinLogon (Windows Logon), then Windows Resource Protection will run to make sure files are still safe.

To run System File Checker manually, Please click start, then enter in the search box CMD, then right click on CMD (appears in the start menu window to the left) and click Run as Administrator.

In the command prompt windows, please enter the following text and press enter:

sfc /scannow

Let it run. If it disappears after a little while, it ran successfully. Please restart your computer and tell of the results, if any.
