I need help :(
The kids played some game on the computer and ...My Start button and Task Bar disappeared... and here is the story, this is what I already tried...

1) First I tried to hover over the bottom (maybe someone minimized it ), including pressing the window button and ctrl+Esc and nothing.
2) When I try using safe mode I do see the start button and task bar... but when I go back to regular mode it is still missing.
3) I tried to start my computer with a clean startup (using msconfig) nothing happened .
4) I tried using

I ran the download file - it updated the registry but nothing helped.

Does anyone have any ideas????
Please help
Thank you all.

Naomi :(

Go to the control panel, taskbar and startup. Is keep taskbar on top of other windows checked?

Also, make sure that that monitor setting weren't changed.

Drag the pointer around the perimeter of the monitor. It may have been docked to the side or the top.

Has the start menu been docked and set to not pop-up? Your cursor should switch to a set of arrows to indicate you can drag it.
