Hello Steevan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Do you mean something like RocketDock maybe?

What make of laptop do you own and what did the dock/taskbar do ?

I've had a few Acer laptops that come pre installed with something similar to Rocket dock.I know that HP Touch Smart also comes with something similar to a taskbar as well.

You could try your manufacturers site and look under the drivers/applications section on the website. With Acer you have to download and install each application into the "Dock" one at a time. Obviously these are dependant on your make and model of P.C and are completely separate from Windows 7.

Hope that helps you out.

Right Click on your desktp, then 'personalize'. On the left, click on 'Taskbar and Start Menu'. See if you can find it again.

Steevan,

You might be able create a set of recovery discs with one of them being a "Applications & Drivers" disc. It may have the installation file on it for it.

How to perform a system recovery using the VAIO Recovery Center.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
