Windows 7: Taskbar disappears


06 Sep 2009   #21

Windows 7 Professional (final) x64
 
 

Hi there,

just want to confirm it too! I use a NVIDIA 8800GS with the newest drivers available.

Also for me nothing helped except for the trick with the screensaver.
I now deactivated the screensaver, hope that helps. Don't need it anyway.

jxerot: i think it's not a solution. I do this trice a day, and I hate it.
The same with dwm.exe - almost every day I get a problem when my desktop goes black and all I can do is kill dwm.exe

Windows 7 Ultimate (RTM)
 
 

Hi all.

This is still happening in Windows 7 Ultimate (RTM), so it's not the Beta editions causing this.

I'm going to search a bit more before I install Windows 7 Ultimate (Retail) as there is no real difference, supposedly.

However, in the meantime, what I've done is create a batch file on my desktop that kills the explorer.exe task and then restarts it. If you would like to do the same, here is how I did it.

1. Open Notepad and type in these two lines.
Code:
taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe
start explorer.exe
2. Save the file as whatever.bat.
That's it. Works for me and is a lot quicker than manually closing and reopening explorer.

If you're not sure how to save a file as bat, in Notepad, Click File>Save As. Change the "Save as type:" to "All Files (*.*)", then name your file what you would like adding .bat to the name. Click Save and you're done.

Hope this helps someone.

dwm.exe is Desktop Window Manager. If this is causing crashes, it may be corrupted.

Open Command Prompt (run as admin) and type this:
Code:
sfc /scannow
Tell us what your results are.

I have the same problem and have been searching various forums for days. Apparently tons of people have similar problems. For the record I have an ATI 4870 video card so Geforce isn't the problem. I can't believe that MS would introduce a brand new OS with all the hype and you can't get thru to them to fix this problem. Thanks for the screensaver temp fix, at least it works, but it pisses me off, MS gives you all these fancy themes and screensavers and they screw thing up.
