which may or may not work depending on whether or not the virus actually caused this or not. Right click on the start button, click on the properties, then click the "taskbar" tab. On the bottom of that click on the "customize button" and you can select which ones you want to appear there. Then click "apply/ok". If that doesn't work there will be other suggestions.
Whenever i open a window/program on windows xp, I have no button in the taskbar to click on, so if i have multiple windows open it means i have to go into Task Manager to select any open applications i have running.
I did recently have some viruses which i quarantined using AVG, is this the result of that? as it did happen around the same time. But i cannot find any information on the 'open applications notifications' in the Taskbar tools/properties etc or indeed anywhere.
Help would be appreciated as it is most annoying. Thanks
