Missing Menu Bars

  Binstock 15:50 01 Aug 07

Hi, Geniuses (never let me down yet) - I have a problem, & I need someone to tell me how to solve it, please....
I run a Windows XP Pro OS on a two & a half year old Athlon system. Recently, I've installed nothing new.
For some reason, the Menu Bar in the Search Function (Start > Search), & 'My Computer' has vanished... (NOWHERE ELSE)
I don't like the Rollback idea... can anyone give me a cure for this problem, & tell me why it happened?
Naturally I have done full-scans for Viruses; Trojans & everthing else nasty that shouldn't be there.... Nothing!
If you can help, - I'd be delighted to hear from you...

Try pressing F11 when using those programs, if no better then :

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

This is very remiss of me.... I'm late with my Reply...
I want to say a Hearty "Thank You" to you, Fruit Bat /\0/\.

Just as I expected, - one of the Geniuses cured the problem for me again.

Warm Regards,
