Are you referring to the white bar between your taskbar and... whatever that weird window thing is in the background.

If that is Vista then I have to ask did the Windows 7 style task bar come from a reputable source? Also what is the problem in question? I see nothing other than a task bar and a program that looks suspiciously like a keygen or intro of sorts. More info is needed.

This will solve both questions.
That is my friends computer...everything in that window...Windows 7 is mine

Teamviewer allows me to see his desktop, use his mouse and keyboard via my own.
That white bar you're seeing is his taskbar. I used the snipper tool for that. xD

Please help.
Kinda regards Rangi and his friend Sam

Does your friend have a taskbar at all, or can you just not see it?

If the taskbar doesn't reappear after restart, press the Windows flag on keyboard, type CMD in Start Search box, rightclick on Command Box result to Run as Admin, then run sfc /scannow

If this doesn't repair it, have him put in his Vista DVD, run a Repair Install from the desktop.

lololol. He has windows vista.
When ever I press "start" on my keyboard his taskbabr will show.
I do this via TeamViewer.
I shall ask him if he has a repair disc or something.

So the problem could be on your end. What performance problems is your friend having exactly?

He has no performance problems per-say, But he can only view his task bar when her hits the windows key.
And he really wanted me to help but unfortunately, I know nothing of this sort of thing.
Forgot to mention, he said it happened when he was randomly pressing keys on his keyboard out of boredom. :Roflmao:
He's only 12, lol. xD

It looks like it's set to Auto-hide.

If you move the mouse cursor down to the bottom it should appear, or press the Windows key, then rightclick on an empty area of the task bar, select Properties and uncheck the box to Autohide Task bar, Apply.

I know about auto-hide. And it isn't that, because auto-hide still shows the rest of the screen and not a white line.
