Windows Fault no icons or taskbar

Q: Windows Fault no icons or taskbar

HI

When i start my PC it runs thru the start up and everything seems normal, windows is starting blue screen, It then goes to my desktop shows the background picture, and a cursor in the middle of the screen, but there are no icons down the left side of the screen, and no taskbar along the bottom. After a moment the task bar flashes up then goes again, I can ctrl/alt/del to get the task manager up, and try to start things in new task but internet will not conect. If i start in safe mode, or safe mode with directory controls(or defaults)cant remember, it start with a black screen in safe mode with small icons, but I can access the internet. any help with this would be much appreciated.

Regards

Jase

Preferred Solution: Windows Fault no icons or taskbar

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows Fault no icons or taskbar

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.Please download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.alternate download linkNote: The file will be randomly named (i.e. 5mkuvc4z.exe).Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:Double-click on the randomly named file to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current versionRead the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.The Express scan will automatically begin.
(This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)After the Express Scan is finished, put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and uncheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Apply, Ok.Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.Click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

Hi all
(I'm italian, excuse me for my bad english).
I have a pc with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I have a problem with some icons on taskbar: sometimes some applications are displaying the wrong icons, sometimes, as you can see (screenshot), I don't see some icons: sometimes a few are missing (this time I have 8 icons of about 20!).

If I restart my pc, some icons return, but many still missing or are wrong!


So I launched this tool from microsof (I think it rebuilt icon cache, but I'm not sure): In Windows le icone vengono modificate in modo non corretto
but it doesnt' fix the problem, see this screenshot after using this tool from microsoft:

now as you can see some applications are displaying the wrong icons and 2 icons are still missing ...is there any fix for this problem? thanks!!

Vittorio.

Hi. I apologize if this has been asked before, but I've just gotten a new pc with Windows 7. Love it, but really do not like the taskbar icons that pop up when I hover over an item on the desktop. Is there a way to remove this feature? Also, sometimes, (for no apparent reason I can see, I get this "transparent" square on my desktop. It goes away, but what causes it?

Many thanks for your help.

Your second issue almost sounds like Aero Peek. It occurs when you hover your mouse over a certain button in your taskbar.

Usually, a right click at the icon > click "unpin from taskbar" will do the trick.

What icons are you referring to ? Please give names of the icons.

my taskbar icons at the default settings are too big for my liking.

If I set "use small icons" as my preference, then they are way too small!

is there a way to set an icon size somewhere between these 2 settings

I'm thinking there MUST be a registry hack that can do this ... many thanks in advance for any advice!

Since I installed Windows 8 (on top of Vista x64 Ultimate) I have two Control Panel icons in the Taskbar.

If I right click and choose Delete to the one on the left, nothing happens.

If I right click and choose Delete to the one on the right, it deletes, but it reappears after a Reboot.

Hello,

I am having the problem of windows booting to NO taskbar or desktop icons, I have run malware bytes and Avast5 and there os no reported problems.

Sadly I have run combofix before I saw all the warnings NOT to do that....WHY?

I have the log report is anyone willing to explain why one should not run combofix?

Any assistance would greatly be appreciated!!

A:Windows boots to NO taskbar or desktop icons

Hello,is anyone willing to explain why one should not run combofix?Sure. To quote Papakid:Running ComboFix by yourself is like performing open heart surgery on yourself--the scalpel and other surgical tools that is ComboFix is meant to be wielded by a highly trained surgeon only in emergencies or dire circumstances. When the surgeon is thru s/he leaves the room. So combofix should be removed from a system once it has accomplished its job, unlike an AV that is there to protect you from future infections.. . . CF does make some alterations to your system if you run it. Even if you had no malware removed and run the uninstall command, some things may be different now on your system. I can tell you that one thing is that all your restore points will be flushed out and a new one created. There is a good reason to do that when you have a severe infection--but if you aren't infected you might need those restore points.That said, please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic. Please be sure to include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.Orange Blossom

Dear Sirs,
all my attempts have proved futile and you are my last hope.

Situation:
I have replaced the icons for 3 of my programs, browser, mail client & mp3 player with custom icons from the web (16x16 ico, 32x32 ico, 48x48 ico, 256x256 png). They show up correctly in the taskbar itself (small and large) BUT the preview windows title bar icon remains the original (See attachments).

Attempted solutions:
Clearing Icon Cache, Prefetch, MUICache, tried all icon color depths, removing Icon completely, re-installing programs

The aesthetic discrepancy is driving me
I believe that windows has somewhere stored a type of "favicon" upon 1st launch of the programs and I can't find it.

If anyone can help me thank you very much, I hope I simply overlooked something really straightforward

Several weeks ago, I accidently deleted the hidden icons on the taskbar (lower right corner). I have tried to work around them but it sure is a lot easier to have them there. Among those things that disappeared are the "remove hardware" button and that was a good one to have around.

I did a google search with no satisfactory answers except for one. It was supposed to show how to do this but after going through the process, it did not restore anything.

Anyone here done this a repaired it?

I'll start by saying that I am not computer literate.  When I click my start button I can no longer see any programs and the only item now on my taskbar is my file folder.  This first happened after the last Windows update 10/2/16.  I restored the computer to a prior date and all was fine until ? it updated again?  Virus?Edit: Moved topic from Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hey everybody,

I've recently managed to recieve some stupid virus. And when I boot up I log in, then this box pops up:



There is no taskbar or any icons on the desktop and the only command that makes anything work is Task manager.

I've tried various steps such as searching through the Registry Editor, Searching my computer's drives trying to find it, Used 'Hijackthis' to scan my computer and see if it's hiding in my RAM or running in the background etc etc etc...

Also, I have performed system restores to around a week ago with no success.

I need to fix this ASAP. Within the next few hours prefferably.

Please, if you have any any ideas, post here or PM me.

Thanks in advance..

A:XP taskbar icons flashing, can't switch windows

Do you have TweakUI for XP installed? Look under General, Focus and try different settings for applications and whether they are allowed to "steal focus". This may be a setting applied by some other "tweaker" or system customization tool, or it may be malware. Either way, this may give you control, and you can then scan for the bad guys.

So I recently restored my computer and went to install all possible updates and now pinned taskbar icons can't be changed. I think it has to do with an update released sometime in the past month or two because I noticed my family computer also has this problem. So I restored mine back to factory and can change icons once again. I didn't install/modify anything apart from windows updates. Is anyone else experiencing this?

A:Taskbar Icons Won't Change (Suspect a Windows Update)

I've not experienced this, nor heard of anyone else who has. Do you mean the icons for the loaded windows lined up on the Taskbar, or the icons of the programs showing within the System Tray?

Dear Members,
 
I am facing a typical problem with Laptop Lenovo G50-80 with following configuration :
Core i3 - 4GB RAM - 1TB Harddisk - AMD Radeon Graphics Card - 15.6" Screen - Windows 10 Home SL.
 
The problem i face is when i start Laptop Windows 10 starts... Desktop icons are displayed but Taskbar icons and icons on system tray are not displayed. Time and date are also not displayed. If i do not do anything the system state remains as it is. But if i double click on Taskbar the icons are displayed and then i can use the Laptop.
 
I tired following things :
 
I used one touch recovery to restore to factory default settings ( Twice )
Chkdsk with /r /f
 
But the problem remains same.
 
Can anybody please suggest solution ?

Hi There,
I am trying to get my windows 2000 to look more user friendly, and I have found some different options. I am trying to find the .dll files in which the images for icons, The taskbar e.t.c are located.

Please can anyone inform me as to where I can find any of these, or simular these files.

I hope that makes sense. Any help is much appreciated.

A:Windows Icons, Taskbar, Sound, Tolbar Files

Good luck on finding all of them, You would need to be a Microsoft programmer to find all of them types of files.

If you want Windows 2000 to look more user friendly I would suggest going to Windows XP Pro.

I wanted to ask whether anyone knew how to change the icons for programs pinned to the taskbar in windows 8.1. For example changing the icon for VLC from it's usual traffic cone to some symbol of the user's own choosing. Or changing the size of some of the icons, so things you want to use more often have larger icons and things you use less often have smaller icons. Or perhaps editing an icon for a program on their so that the icon becomes the usual icon for the program but with a dark or bright coloured line around it, or a load of small inward pointing arrows. Or switching one from colour to greyscale. Is this possible to do? How?All I could find from google searches were things about how to add and remove icons, or change the look of the taskbar as a whole.Thank You

A:Windows 8.1 taskbar, changing icons of pinned programs?

Hi songsinh1241 I'm pretty sure it's possible. The icons you pinned to your taskbar are located in the following folder:C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBarFrom there, right-click on any icon and select Properties. Click on the Change icon... buttom and select a new one, then apply the changes. Once done, the icon for the program in the taskbar should change.

I'm never the one to ask, but I don't know what happened. I tried looking online but I couldn't find any solutions. It seems like all my icons (including folders) are not showing up in windows explorer, taskbar, or the desktop anymore. This isn't too big a problem, but navigating through my picture library is very complicated without thumbnails.

My PC is pretty heavily customized.
I also cannot open the start menu from the taskbar anymore. I click the startorb and nothing appears.

Screenshots

Also, while I was uploaded the three screenshots to imgur, the icons showed up on the popup to windows explorer.

A:Desktop icons and taskbar disappeared [MOVED FROM WINDOWS]

A temporary solution may be task manager, new task, then type "explorer".
That should bring up the familiar windows explorer so you can don't have to use task manager all the time. As for why this has happened, not sure, will look up your particular problem.

My son gave me his Presario 700 laptop. Yesterday I turned it on and all it would do is go to the wallpaper and then nothing. I do not get any icons or start button. I was able to get on line by going to the ctrl,alt,del and getting the task window and doing a search.

I can not find the restore disk and my son is in Irag, so I can not ask him where it is. My question is, is there a way to restore by using the task window to find the file?

Thanks,

A:Windows desktop doesn`t show. No icons or taskbar etc.

Is this Windows XP? I guess what you could do is search for rstrui.exe, it's the system restore utility, and try that out. You can find it in C:\Windows\system32\Restore (at least on my computer.)

How do I change the way active/open taskbar icons look? I want to get rid of the blurred box around the icons and have a different effect such as a small indicator light under them to let me know they're open. Is that possible?

A:Change the way active/open taskbar icons look in Windows 7

I use classic theme though that sounds like a great idea... I doubt this can be done via any ico file or what have you. Would require a custom theme or third party application. I found another thread on here that asked the question. This is apparently controlled by DWM, and the closest thing you can do is a use a coloured theme and the blur will be a different shade of what ever colour you chose. The last thread was in mention of modifying the contrast here: How to change colors icons from the taskbar ?

You reinstalled Windows and have a black screen, can't open programs how are you running Windows update?

Brand and model of the PC?

Did you reinstall using a Windows disc or a recovery partition on the hard drive?

Here is our dilemma. At the community college I work at, the librarians have requested that certain icons be pinned to the taskbar for all users. By default, Internet Explorer, File Explorer, and Store are pinned on the taskbar in Windows 8.1.

Well, they want none of those icons pinned to the taskbar, but they do want other icons pinned. I have tried a script to get rid of them on logon, but it deletes the icons so slowly that users can actually notice the icons disappearing on logon (it takes about 2 seconds per icon to delete). The librarians dislike this.

So, has anyone figured out the mechanism that creates these three icons? I would like to figure out a way to disable their creation in the first place, if possible. Already, Windows will allow additional icons to be added; it simply won't allow these three to be removed.

A:How to remove default pinned taskbar icons in Windows 8.1?

Right click and select "unpin this program from the taskbar". I have that option for all three on my Windows 8.1 system.

On my ASUS N550, Windows 8.1, my taskbar icons are blank for any Windows Store apps. The icons are normal for other apps (like MS Office, Explorer, etc...).

It was working before and all of sudden, it stopped working! To start with, I thought it was the graphic card driver and I did all the updates but it didnt work.

In case you need to know; my computer is not connected with any business policy, I am just using my hotmail account.

I started having profile errors with Chrome on Sunday. I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome but that didn't solve the problem. I managed to get rid of it by deleting the user and creating a new user. Then Chrome started launching a second icon from the taskbar. I've unpinned it/repinned it, pinned it to the taskbar from the Start menu and it still keeps doing it.

Any help would be appreciated,

A:Windows 7 taskbar creating double Google Chrome icons

I don't know if it will solve this problem, but generally I've found installed chrome has issues. What I did is unpack a chromium snapshot under a user folder. I use C:\Utils for small utilities that don't need to be installed. Not being under Program Files the Windows system doesn't mess with the folder. But that's an aside. If you get the chrome-win32.zip file instead of installer, then unzip it to a new folder while the old chrome is still installed on your system, it should automatically pick up your bookmarks and settings.

Once you have it running correctly, remove the installed chrome.

If you try any of the chromium snap shots, the bleeding edge new versions, it's a good idea to back up your AppData\Local\Chromium folder as well as the folder that has the exe(the one you unzipped into.) That way if you get a bug you can just copy the saved folder contents back over. I keep a save folder for each chromium major version number I try such as 21.x 22.x etc..

It sounds complicated but I've been running chromium from snap shot zip files for over a year. It's just as stable as the production version unless you encounter a big bug. I keep the zip files with the version and build embedded in the name. If I have to go back to a known working version and my backup folders got hosed I can just unzip.

If you have LastPass and use bookmark sync the only thing you might lose is extention updates(but even those should be good if your back up folder scheme is kept current.)

I'm using 21.0.1156.0 chromium snap shot now. I've been running it since the end of May 2012. It's nice and solid.

edit: you don't have to use a snap shot. You can get chrome-win32.zip download from major sites like Softpedia. But if you want to try the newest you can get snap shots here:

Thing is, when i change my taskbar icons to small, the size of the Start button is also scaled down. This looks out of place / ugly on the taskbar imo.

Does anyone here know if it is possible to use the original size and original Start button when small taskbar icons are used?

This is how it looks now:

I created a few shortcuts from chrome and added them to my Taskbar for ease of use.

I created one for each of my multiple Gmail accounts etc and I changed their icons to something so I can identify which was which. The shortcut's took the icon and worked fine for a short period than I noticed every time I click on the icon after changing the default icon to my new one It would change the icon back to Gmails default one.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Hope I explained it properly.

A:TaskBar Icons Constantly Changing My Icons For Chrome any Help?

I noticed the same problem. I think the solution is to make the shortcut read only before you pin it to the task bar. I did this a few days ago and they seem to be keeping my new icon.
If you later want to unpin the shortcut from the taskbar you will need to remove the readonly check from the taskbar shortcut properties. Although it will unpin without doing this you will be left with the shortcut in the real folder and have to go there to physically delete it.

My problem is specific to the unpinned icons in Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit. The pinned applications stay put just fine. This problem started a couple of days ago.

It seems that, when I have multiple unpinned applications open, sometimes the icons of the unpinned applications move around at random times (it seems that the last active unpinned application moves to the right even though it wasn't the program opened last). And sometimes, when I have only one unpinned application on the taskbar, its icon seems to move from some slot to its right back in its position.

For some reason I suspect some malware or virus may be the cause.

I tried uninstalling ATI Radeon HD6450 drivers and reverting to an older version, as well as uninstalling every program that was installed since the day the problem started, to no avail. I found four malware in the meantime but even removing said malware did not solve my problem.

A:Unpinned taskbar icons moving around the taskbar

I don't think it's malware. If it's any consolation, my machine at work does this occasionally, and it's clean. I don't know what's causing it, but I've just chalked it up to being a quirk in Windows.

A:Windows 7 Taskbar Creates Separate Chrome Icons Other Than Pinned Icon

Welcome to Seven Forums juiceimus. The fact you don't have it synced makes it difficult, as that is a fix. I have 2 ideas for you:

Right click the Chrome shortcut> Properties> Compatibility Tab> Change compatibility to Vista

See if that works (you could try other compatibility choices as well. This would be a workaround as the fix is something you can't do

Also, you might try unpinning the icon, Open Chrome from the start menu by right clicking the Chrome icon and choosing Run as administrator. Now pin that instance of Chrome to the taskbar, and see of that helps.

So I upgraded to Windows 10 and reverted back to Windows 7. And now my pinned / recent documents aren't showing on the taskbar icons.

For example, I have Excel on the taskbar icons. Before the upgrade, I was able to view recently opened documents and even pinned them to the icons which I can view by simple right clicking the icons on the taskbar.

How do I get this back?

Example: PS doesn't show my pinned or recent items. Excel does.... Word doesn't.

So, pretty self explanatory, I have this super bizarre problem, whenever I have my taskbar set to small icons in the properties, the taskbar icons are all wrong, for example, the Windows Task Manager will show up as Google Chrome (application seem to take a fancy for that icon) or Adobe Lightroom will show up as the Windows Picture Viewer. I have searched everywhere, and all I can find are cases of missing icons, which is not my problem. Perhaps this is linked to the other problem I am having. (Half of monitor is out of sync.)
 

A:Bizarre: Windows taskbar shows improper icons in small icon mode

Don't know if I can help but will also try take a look at your problem.

First, just to be clear, note the 3 groups of icons along the bottom of screen image below. On left are Quick Launch icons, middle are open programs, on right are notification icons. Which group(s) are wrong when small? Also, can you right click a wrong icon and select Pin to Start Menu. Does it get pinned with the right or wrong icon?

This is a strange issue that's been bothering the living hell out of me. NO one seem to know how to get this resolved.

I installed Tune Up Utilities and just uninstalled it again actually, and done a bit tweaking to the system. Now for example if I have 5 tabs opened in IE (which you can see the little tabs in it's taskbar icon), but when I hover the icon, the live thumbnails don't automatically pop up. I have to click the icon at the bottom and THEN the live thumbnails come up above it.

Please do not tell me this is how it's supposed to work because it's NOT. A fresh installation or new profile does not work this way, instead, any icon in the taskbar with applications opened, shows the live thumbnails upon HOVERING the icon.

A:Windows 7 Restricted User - Remove Right click on taskbar icons; Remove show desktop icon

Hello Megan,

Hope you're doing fine.

Disabling context menu from application on the taskbar
Please note the task bar context menu for any application for windows 7 is sub-divided into two sections :

   a. Jumplist(to access recently opened files) 
   b. Creating a new instance of the application, Pin/Unpin, Close window

We can only disable the Jump List of the Taskbar context menu but not the "new instance creation, Pin/Unpin, close window"

Please follow the steps below to disable jump list:
1. Right-click on the Taskbar and then select Properties.
2. Click on the Start Menu tab and uncheck "Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar".
3. Click OK.

Disabling Show Desktop from the system tray
Regarding the requirement of disabling the "Show Desktop" button alltogether from the System tray, this is by design.

There are no ways to remove it. All we can do is to disable aero peek at Taskbar properties by right clicking and uncheck the option "Use Aero Peek to preview the desktop".
There's a third party software which addresses this sopecific purpose but I'm not pretty sure if this works perfectly for Windows 7 SP1 as well. Please refer to the link below.

If you don't use them, you can always remove them from your taskbar.

Start Menu
My computer (Documents or similar)
Windows Media Player
An HP utility of some kind. (possibly an updater)
I don't recognize

hi. i have installed a piece of software on my computer.

when i install it it adds an icon to tohe taskbar to let me know it is running. this is the only way of accessing the program.

is there any way of hiding this icon in the taskbar from view. i dont mean by using the windows hide function where you click on the arrow and you can see it again but by actually removing it from the taskbar for either selected users or for all users.
If you could hel me in this i would be very happy

thank you

I rebooted my computer yesterday and now it won?t load any desktop icons or the taskbar, all I get is the wallpaper. I am able to get to files and the internet thru the Task Manager>browse option. AVG free (ver 7.5) removed Trojan horse Sheur2.LBH which I think I unknowingly infected my computer thru a jump drive.
I?ve run a virus scan again but it says ?no threats found?
I?m the only account on the computer as an administrator with password protected; guest account is disabled.
I?ve tried safe mode and system restore with the same result?.no icons or taskbar.

The computer is a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop with Win XP Home with SP2 or 3; Windows Firewall; AVG free 7.5 (updated daily); Firefox browser

Curiously, the processes within task manger mainly show LOCAL SERVICE and SYSTEM. The only OWNER is task manager. For a total of 11 usually I?m running 21-22
thanks in advance

Download Mbam using Safemode w/networking, if you must. You can also download to another computer and use a thumb drive or burn it to a CDIf you use Spybod S&D, turn off the Teatimer function----------------The process of cleaning your computer may require temporarily disabliling some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note:-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. Note 2:-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs---------------------------------If mbam won't installSome types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

Hi, I have a laptop running XP with SP2. Had a serious problem with viruses/malware. Loaded McAfee Virusscan onto the laptop, ran it, cleaned up all except 1 virus (sorry never wrote the name down). I was told to reboot system and McAfee would complete the clean up process. When I did the reboot, I get to my background screen, but nothing else happens. No Icons....No Windows TaskBar at the bottom of the screen. I can run programs using the CTL-ALT-DELETE Task Manager.

How do I get Windows back to normal & restore the icons?

Thanks

A:NO ICONS or TASKBAR!!

In the task manager, go to File>New Task(run)>type in explorer.exe, it should work since thats what the problem seems to be.

A:taskbar icons

Hi flashh4, it depends on which application places that icon on the task bar.
Can you say which application is?

has anyone found a way to change the icons of apps that have been pinned to the start menu other than reshacking the exe?

A:taskbar icons

Hello Garbanzo,

You could create a shortcut of the exe file, then change the icon of the shortcut and pin that shortcut to the Start Menu.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

HP Envy desktop came with Windows 10 Home already loaded. Set it up with my program shorcut icons in the taskbar. Everything working just fine for days, and then all of a sudden (well maybe not as I had just installed updates from MS) the taskbar no longer shows those icons and the Windows Start/Search/taskview icons on the left and the HP Support/Notification icons on the right show but all are inactive. Looked t some of the responses on this forum, but didn't try any of them (except starting explorer which made no difference) as they may not be pertinent to my problem. Help certainly appreciated.

A:Icons used to be on taskbar?

There can be a few possible solutions.
Let's start with a more "standard, traditional" solution............
Do a system restore. Pick a date when you did NOT have this problem as your restore point.
System Restore Windows 10

If that works, case close.
If not, we'll try next possible solution.
