Windows 7: Taskbar disappears after sleep mode...

Windows 7

Just had the same exact thing happen. Task bar disappeared but I did not know why. After reading this post I realize that it is most likely the screen saver I just installed.

This happened to me after I updated my graphics drivers. (ATI Radeon).
I rolled back the driver to the previous version and the problem was gone.

Same problem, hopefull for same fix!

I just stumbled upon this forum and registered just to say thanks! I was having the same problem, but I did recently install a new screen saver, so I'm hoping that my problem will fix itself when I uninstall it. I think I'll go back to good old Bubbles too! Thanks so much!

My problem seems to be a bit different. My taskbar disappears, not hides, when the computer goes to sleep and the screen looks distorted about the # of pixels of the taskbar. My workaround is to kill explorer.exe proces with taskmgr and relaunch explorer.exe and the bar is fixed and the desktop goes back to the correct view.

Seems that "disable the screen saver" is a workaround, not a fix as the screen saver should work. The screen saver I have is windows "blank". I am trying the SFC fix to see if that helps and checking the video driver forums to see if they have a fix.

Isn't is weird.
The solution is to uninstall the screensaver.
Not real a solution more of a workaround.
