  1. My taskbar disappeared. I restarted my computer, but it soon disappeared
    again. How can I get it back?

  3. It could be because of some change/s/ of the settings you recently made.
    If you have Windows XP or Windows Me Edition
    you can restore your system to earlier date and time so all your current
    system changes would be removed and you'll have your system like it was 3
    days ago,for example.
    But this is only for XP and ME.

    Here is the path for XP (in Me is similar)

    Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore
    Then click on "Restore my system to earlier date" and choose the date two
    or three days before the taskbar started disapperaring.

    It could be some kind of malware ,but I really haven't heard of malware that
    just make the taskbar disappear and that's all.
    Check for malware with your Antivirus and also with your
    Antispyware software,you may try even in Safe Mode
    <<Safe Mode - Do this by repeatedly typing F8 while Windows is starting
    Windows logo appears.
    Then you'll open the BIOS menu where you can choose to boot
    the hard drive in SAFE MODE >>

    Also check here:
    Panda Software free Active Scan,where you can check your
    PC for ALL TYPES of security threats and clean viruses and worms

    <<<As MS-MVP Malke says, do not worry to take your computer to professional
    computer store where IT specialists will test your PC if necessary.Before
    that make a back-up of all your data you really need.>>>
