Windows 7: Taskbar disappears after sleep mode...

Taskbar disappears after sleep mode...

Sometimes after I wake my computer from sleep mode, my taskbar is missing. The Windows Start button is still there, but nothing of the taskbar. After I reboot it goes away, but I'd rather not do that. Any suggestions?

Just off the top. When you find it, right click and lock it. Lets hope it does not hide again.

It has always been locked. It is a glitch of some sort, I just don't know how to fix it.

Try unlocking it then.

Also you can try to repair using the system file checker.

If that doesn't work, you can try doing a repair install which will leave your programs, data and most settings intact.

Okay, I downloaded some screensavers from Microsoft and I believe after they run the taskbar hides itself. I changed the screensaver so hopefully this fixes the problem. I'll keep everyone posted.

I just installed 7 three days ago and I am having the same problem. I also removed a screensaver I installed. Please let me know if you fix yours and what you did.

Thanks

If the problem is not fixed, just use system restore. Everything will be good again.

Sorry, forgot to post back. Yes, once I removed the Windows live Screensaver package in Add/Remove Programs the problem was fixed. If you didn't add this screensaver package, I recommend that you do what Richard said and just do a system restore back to a time before the problem existed. Hope that helps! Let us know if you continue to have problems.

It really is "the" place. I've asked so many questions and have had 99% of them answered in this forum. Good to see other people helping each other out.
