SP2 and Task Bar (sorry!)

I searched for this! Honest, I couldn't find it.

Anyhoo, here's the deal. After waking up from hibernation, my task bar is gone. This only started after installing SP2.


Thanks very much,

if you're using a desktop pc disable hibernation.

if its a laptop its debatable whether its usefull so you could probably disable it there too.

However in the eventuallity you dont want to do that you could try this reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



import that and reboot, hibernate and wake up and see if its still missing. if it is the only other work around I can think of would be to hit ctrl+shift+esc to get task manager up, kill all instances of explorer.exe in the process list, then file > new task and type explorer.exe in that box.

and wait for someone else to come up with a solution :D
Thanks. I'll see if anyone has any other solution, 'cause I'm not comfortable with the registry stuff.

Failing that, I'll disable hibernation...I was trying to save energy...and the planet! :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
