Most likely is a mistake somewhere in your theme, or a fail within Windows. Try rebooting and see if it fixes it

i see that my message wasn't made clearly, the theme was set to make the taskbar transparency, as you can in see in the 2nd screenshot, the menu is covering a part of the taskbar, is there any way ( be it script or tutorials) to help my startup menu appearing in screen shot 1, so that it doesn't clash with the taskbar?

@ ZaLiTH - that's good to know because i don't always have the time or the patience to wait for the take ownership process that takes a few good 8-10 min

So I don't know what I did wrong, but when I tried to change the start orb, I couldn't do anything with explorer. I figured a restart would fix it, so I did that, bad idea! Now when I logon all I have is a black screen with the mouse pointer! I can open task manager and whatnot, but I don't know how to get explorer working again. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I had the exact same problem recently, perhaps the fix I found would help for you as well? All depends on whether or not you can still use Ctrl+Alt+Del to log out of your profile when you hit that black screen.. But try it and see.

It's a bit of a two part thing; here is the process I used initially (link), and I found later I needed to perform one more step to get it working properly (link). Hope that helps a bit...

Thanks for the help, I was able to get it working again today just after a restore point. I feel like an idiot for not thinking about that sooner. Panicked too early haha.

It happens like that sometimes, for some reason I always seem to go for the most complex solutions first, pretty much expecting the worst.. Guess it's my pessimistic side showing through hey. Anyways, glad you got it sorted.
