Wierd bug

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by =?Utf-8?B?U2Vhd29sZg==?=, Nov 28, 2005.

  1. It's very possibly related to some file system crap I had goin on earlier,
    but I have no file navigation toolbar or any of the menus in My Computer.
    (The rest of the OS is working perfectly so far.)

    Anyone know how I can fix that? I searched around support.microsoft.com for
    XP and XP x64 and didn't find anything.

  2. Right click on the menu bar (or where it is supposed to be) and check:
    "Address Bar", "Standard Buttons" and whatever has disappeared.

  3. Indeed, I got nothing. Only thing there is the top of the window, straight
    to the drive listing. Haven't a clue what's wrong with it.

    Mind you, I admit I don't really have a clean enough install for honest
    testing, but you wouldn't think any other programs could affect THAT. (And
    I'm positive I don't have any malware problems.)

  4. Well maybe thats just, you need to do a clean install to resolve the issue.
    Was this an upgrade from a beta release of Windows XP Professional x64? Its
    possible you are seeing a conflict from such non supported upgrade scenario.

  5. I never had a beta...was a clean install. It started at a very specific
    time, after I'd had some file system corruption. I just can't guarantee that
    caused the problem. I'll do some further checking on my own, and if I can't
    find it, no huge deal. I don't feel like reinstalling on dialup. :p

    Huh, why not? Are you streaming the install?

  7. Because you have to install the OS, download hotfixes, tweak, install things,
    download patches for those things, install games, and overall it takes well
    over half a day. Even given that I have most of my programs saved to my HD.

    It's not a system killing problem, so I'll live.

  8. I fixed it...
    Yay Stardock!

    Sorry to bother you all :)

    --> All of my Explorer Bars Have Disappeared

    Solution
    As far as we can tell, this is not caused by WindowBlinds. However there
    seems to be a fix for it here: http://www.tissot.de/blogs/archives/000023.html
    Essentially you run regedit and find this key:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar
    Then delete the proper Sub key to get the bars back: Explorer, ShellBrowser,
    WebBrowser. That should do it.
