I wasn't too bright and while I was trying to figure out why i can't go to my display option and change my background/theme, and trying to figure out how to get the info on my MP-4 player off, i went into the system configuration utility. now I can't get my tool bar on the bottom of the screen and i can't do a system restore from any sooner that when I messed it up. if someone could tell me please how to get everything back, I would apprecaite it. I did to to run-msconfig and went in and put it back to normal and it still doesn't work, I think i probably "tinkered" with some of the other tabs. oops. info for my compuer is My Operating System

Have you tried that? Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Pick a date before this happened.

thank you for the answer. yep, that is what I did first thing, but now it won't let me go back very far and I hate that. I kept playing with it and got it so nothing worked. now i can at least get online, but now my task bar is at the top instead of the bottom ( I think I had said tool bar before, sorry.)

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
