Where is my start menu and task manager?

August 1, 2009 at 16:17:58
Specs: Windows XP
Okay, whenever I try logging into my computer, the start menu and task manager is missing at the bottem, and the problem still happens in safe mode. I KNOW YOU CAN PRESS CTRL ALT DELETE AND THEN CREATE A NEW TASK NAMED EXPLORER,

but I am tired of doing that, and I want the REAL fix so it doesn't do that anymore.

Please do not post HJT logs without invitation.
There are sites available that will anylize your log


As to the disappearing taskbar items, I've suffered this intermittantly for a couple of years and have run System Restore from safemode with command prompt to resolve it.

I now use a registry backup tool called ERUNT and it has worked flawlessly while System Restore has occasionally failed. http://www.snapfiles.com/get/erunt....
