    Guys, today when I powered on my PC, its not displaying taskbar. However time I restart my PC or my explorer, it doesn't show up.

    Getting only desktop icons, nothing else.
    Able to access all drives, task-manager, registry no issues with that...

    OS: WinXP SP3

    Try using CCleaner to fix up the registry.

    Check if explorer.exe is running in process task manager . . I usually run this process when comp hangs and taskbar goes . .

    I think you have resized the task bar completely. check if you can see a thin blue bar(unless you have changed the theme). hover the cursor near the bottom of the screen and see if the resize icon appears. Press the window button and see if the start menu appears.

    I didn't resize the taskbar.
    I never do that and I hate that.

    In the morning, when electricity went off, PC shutdown automatically (I've set it through APC). Next when it restarted automatically as electricity came, its not showing taskbar.
