I don't know if anyone knows how to fix this, but recently I had to reinstall my copy of windows. After installing the driver for my sound card, suddenly my taskbar disappeared. It seems it is still down there (tweaking the settings sometimes shows a HINT of it that I can right click on), but nothing I do will make it come back to normal.
I know it's frowed upon to discuss other sites around here, but The DVDVR board has had the dread IPS Error forever (almost an entire day!), and has been really slow lately. What's going on Dean? Would donations help?
