New update of Windows Vista has changed the display including the taskbar settings

Last night, my computer is kept up-to-date on my computer that I did not authorize.  I am running a virus scan.  I do not notice any difference (in fact, the computer seems to work better), but the taskbar like Windows 98.  I spent under properties and tried to change the theme, but only classic Windows is available.  Please tell me how I can change my taskbar.  It is quite annoying.

I also had this problem, the problem disappeared after a second reboot immediately after the update. I hope I could help

  • Windows Vista has crashed, "the operating system not found" error, can I load Windows XP on a partition?

    I have an Acer Aspire 5516, with pre-installed Windows Vista. I didn't know that it did not come with a recovery disk UNTIL my system crashed! During a routine virus scan, I got a blue screen saying a major problem has been found and the system has been shut down. I followed the instructions to gracefully shut down my laptop. When I turned this back on after the "Acer" logo he went to a black screen with info on my computer and the last line States "not found operating system". That's when I discovered there was no recovery disc & it is integrated into the system. To access this system you we F8 to enter safe mode, then Alt F10 to access 'erecovery management system. Neither one of these functions operate! Still getting the black screen with "operating system" not found I have a Windows XP my laptop previous. What I was wondering is if I can load on my Acer, possibly on a partition, in order to be able to get into my laptop and save all of my files? I'm terrified of losing everything I have! I have thousands of pictures that I can't replace. If anyone can help please do! I am on a very limited income & can not really afford professional help. Thank you very much in advance!


    normally with an Acer you press Alt + F10 at startup to start the hidden recovery partition recovery, not F8, then this combo

    but you do not have an option to save your data, that

    in daily use acers normally have a system partition, a partition of data to save your data, etc. to and also this hidden partition recovery

    and read this on data recovery, too;

    1. remove the hard drive and it slave in another computer

    2 buy or borrow a USB disk drive hard put in yout case then plug it into another computer and read the hard drive like this

    3. try Knoppix


    BUT this method 3 depends on your hardware in the computer that failed

    read this information about method 3:


    Download/save the file Knoppix Live CD ISO above.

    Download the Vista software from the link above.

    After installing above ISO burning software, right click on the Knoppix ISO file > copy the Image to a CD.

    Knoppix is not installed on your PC; use only the resources of your PC, RAM, graphics etc.

    Change the boot order in YOUR computer/laptop to the CD/DVD Drive 1 in the boot order.

    Plug a Flash Drive/Memory Stick, BOOT with the Live CD, and you should be able to read the hard drive.

    When the desktop loads, you will see at least two drive hard icons on the desktop (one for your hard drive) and one for the USB key.

    Click on the icons of hard drive to open and to understand which drive is which.

    Click the icon for the USB drive and click on "Actions > Change the read/write mode" so you can write to disk (it is read-only by default for security reasons).

    Now to find the files you want to back up, just drag and drop them on the USB. When you're done, shut down the system and remove the USB key.

  • Is it possible in windows vista to hide the taskbar, but still be able to see the system tray?

    I want to hide the task bar, but then, I don't see the system tray. Is it possible to have the separate system tray?

    Hi arya78,

    It is possible to do the reverse of what you want - to hide some or most of the icons in the system tray bar while leaving the rest of the visible taskbar; However, you cannot hide the taskbar and let only the visible system tray icons because they are part of the task bar and the task bar should be visible so that they are visible.

    Sorry, but this is how Vista works.  If you try to get rid of the section in the taskbar, which shows open programs, it cannot simply be done without hiding the entire taskbar (including system tray icons).

    Good luck!

  • My cat sleeping on the keyboard, somehow open CSS Web Developer and has changed the default settings for a Web site so that it appears to about 10px up

    Big hairy cat, who likes to sleep on a hot surface. Given that Windows XP is no longer supported I use Windows 7 and since I write for Mozilla Support a question, it's a safe bet that I don't use Internet Explorer.

    Is it tiny zoomed? You can reset the zoom level on a site by holding down the Ctrl key and typing 0 (that's a zero).

    Or is there a large dark area, leaving only a tiny vision area? This could be the sensitive Design Mode and usually by pressing the ESC key, which clears.
