Specs: Windows XP Pro, 512 MB

My taskbar and start menu disappear, while
working in windows xp pro. I am able to
refresh by going into the control panel-
taskbar menu. Keeps happening though, any
ideas on how to fix?!

Are you sure it is not hidden. If you press ctrl+esc does you start menu pop-up. If it does you may have auto-hide enabled.

jcambece - it does appear, but I know it's not hidden and it is in front of other windows. It keeps the minimized windows in the tray, the whole bar just disappears? any other ideas?

Tufenuf - I tried two scripts to restore my taskbar and registry files...still no go. It's not happening as frequently now though. Do you think I need to reinstall my OS, or is there anything else I can do to try and fix?
