HELP PLEASE... Taskbar doesn't show!

I Logged onto my computer this morning and instead of getting the normal taskbar and being able to do what I want, my Libraries folder popped up and I got no taskbar. I can't use any keys or shortcuts on my keyboard. Only the mouse and open programs through the folder window. There was no error message in the booting process and it was fine last night. Please help, I have no idea what to do! It sucks

Right click where the task bar should be and see if you can change properties.

**EDIT**

Do you have a start button?

I tried doing that but nothing was popping up I couldn't click anywhere on the main desktop. I managed to access one of my utility programs Glary on the folder window that popped up and did a system restore... it went back to normal . Still don't know what the cause was. Out of all my problems I've had on computers that was the weirdest one.

Glad you solved it. That's a weird one. I was going to have you click on start, enter taskbar and start menu, click on hide, then unhide. But wasn't sure if you have a start button.

If you're tweaking with Glary, then that's prob what caused it.

Tweaking is not needed in Win7 and will work agianst you almost every time.
