Hey guys...My mom got a new desktop at her work to use Finale (computer program) on (she's a music minister and uses it with here piano...long story) anyways when she got it I installed Firefox, Kodak picture software (I hate it because it takes over but she needs
it for picture editing, Ad-Aware, Finale, Priter Driver, MS Office, etc. all the required programs to make the system work for her. Then when I restarted it the icons and start bar were gone
!!! We had it looked at and the company said to just send it back...which was nice....we thought.
So now she got her 2nd tower and I do the same exact thing as I said above and things were going great, I installed everything and restarted it a few times and it was working perfect. Then I used Partition Magic and partitioned off 10gigs for her music files then restarted and you guessed it....poof the icons and start bar are gone AGAIN. I'm pretty depressed because although I'm not a big hardware guy I am pretty proficient with programs, give me a program and I'll learn it top to bottom. So PLEASE help, this is really depressing for me to not be able to help, I'm ALWAYS able to help with any computer problems in my family and even other places but this one has me stumped.
Just to help and get rid of some possibel replies to this I did the only thing that will make anything respond which is opening up the task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and the only program running is some "Kodak update" hope that helps you computer veterans out.
