Open up Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) and check the Processes tab for explorer.exe which is the Windows shell that includes such interface items. If it's not there, go back to the Applications tab, click New Task, and type it in. Don't confuse explorer.exe with iexplore.exe where the latter one is Internet Explorer.

If the shell doesn't appear now, let us know. If you reboot the computer and have to manually start it each time, let us know.

What was your procedure in trying to get it back? When did this problem start? Do you have System Restore points that you could potentially revert to before this problem occurred?

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.

If you mean the taskbar at the bottom of the screen then it is quite independent of your browsers (Chrome or Internet Explorer). If that is what you mean then is it missing as soon as you start the computer and reach the desktop - if so does it appear if you waive the mouse over that area?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
