Windows 7: Toolbar disappears?

Toolbar disappears?

If this is in the wrong place, please move it.

This problem has been constant recently, and it only seems to happen when I go AFK for a period of time (maybe when my screensaver comes up)

And my toolbar/taskbar completely disappears and is basically not there. If I right click in that area it's like I'm clicking on my desktop. But my start button is still there.

To bring it back I usually have to log off, but it's annoying.

Here's a screenshot.

I'm not sure of the issue but rather than logging off you could kill the "explorer" process with task manager and then restart it.

I have found, on occasion, where my Notification Area goes away and this brings it back every time without logging off and back on making it necessary to close all running applications.

Try disabling the screensaver. If that doesn't fix it, try updating the video driver. It's usually a screensaver issue. A Guy
