Windows 7: Taskbar disapeared and nothing's responding

Taskbar disapeared and nothing's responding

My brother recently installed new game and after he played it for some time, when he exited it, the task bar was missing. Not a single program is responding. I tried the ctrl esc to get the taskbar back, but no use. Even the task manager didn't open. Even when I click the right click the menu doesn't open. What could be the problem?

Hello Mikadina, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like explorer is not running.

Press the CTRL + Shift + Esc keys to open Task Manager.

In Task Manager, click on File (menu bar) and New Task (Run...), type explorer, and click on OK. This will restart explorer for you.

If Task Manager will not open, then press and hold the power button on your computer case until it powers off, then press the power button to restart the computer. This would be a hard restart.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

May I ask What game this was?

I know you solved it, but I am interested.

Anything else weird with the pc? Slowness, freezing?

Next time you might want to create there own account for them, and have them be a limited user so they cannot install anything or use the pc without your permission.

The game was GTA: San Andreas. And no. I haven't noticed any other problems. But the game was uninstalled so things like these won't happen again
