    best to change parameters you think are playing up then restart and do it
    again if need be.

    Difficult to say what else it could be from here, but you could try while in
    safe mode moving the task bar to the top or side of the screen and/or
    switching to/from classic mode then restarting the PC in normal mode. That
    could cause the task bar to come back to your screen.

    If that does not sort the problem then good luck. I hope someone else can
    figure it out for you.

    When you find an answer, please post the solution.

    Thanks. I'll try those little tweaks you suggested. And I'll post the
    resolution when and if it comes.

    Hey, that worked great!

    In safe mode I switched the settings around back and forth and then when I
    booted into normal mode it was back.

    Thanks!

    How about WindowsKey-R? (Hold the Windows key, hit R)

    If not, do you still have desktop icons?

    Any indication that Explorer is even running?

    Its been resolved. I posted the solution which was given to me elsewhere in
    the thread. Here it is:

    "Hey, that worked great!

    In safe mode I switched the settings around back and forth and then when I
    booted into normal mode it was back.

    Thanks!"
