Installing problem

I have now tried 5 times to upgrade from '98SE' and although everything seems to well with no reported errors, I do not have a taskbar, start-button or icons on the desktop.
Any help here would be appreciated.

Upgrading...sucks...I've learned that MS and "upgrading" don't mix, I'd recommend a clean install sorry man

As I recall, XP does a good job of grabbing all your old settings during an upgrade. Here's a wild guess: I don't remember if SE could do this but did you somehow hide your task bar, etc in SE?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
