The one stop solution for all your Windows related problems
Over the past few days, some of our users have reported problems with the xp sp3 taskbar.
I may have recently had to reinstall Windows XP. Since then, almost every time I install multiple service packs, my taskbar won’t load at login.mu. The only way to repair them is to repair the installation using the same Windows XP installation disc. However, this is of little help, because then I do not have any updates installed. I tried stopping explorer.exe and then restarting it and copied explorer.exe from my old bootloader computer (mine recognizes the drive but still refuses to boot from it even now). Both were not processed. It would be very helpful if someone could tell me how to fix this directly or maybe avoid the problem when I need to install XP SP3 next time. I’m in the car now. I use the task manager to open the handle bar.
EDIT: I just thought this was related and realized there is something else that will help you solve the problem. My desktop also wouldn’t boot and nothing in the autostart folder would launch. I don’t know why, but it occurred to me that this could also be a typical problem so far. Until now, I thought it was all about the taskbar not loading, but now I think there is a big dilemma here.
How do I unhide my taskbar in Windows XP?
Click at the bottom of the screen to display the hidden taskbar. Right-click an empty section of the taskbar, then click “Properties” in the pop-up window.Uncheck “Auto Hide” under the “Taskbar Properties” overlay with a quick click.Click OK to close the new window.
Update: I’ll try to do a proper system restore with the SP3 restore command type. If that doesn’t work, I can repair the install again. The taskbar tool recommended in the comments didn’t work. Also, don’t run Explorer.exe. Some of the answers didn’t provide enough detail to go back to troubleshooting, such as changing the executable folder. Others seem to work with a completely different problem. Prepare your answers and remember that I don’t have an explorer GUI.
How do I fix the bottom toolbar?
More information. To move the taskbar from its default position along the bottom edge of the screen to one of the other three screen edges: Click the empty edge of the taskbar. While holding down the entire primary mouse button, drag the mouse pointer to the location on the screen where you want to place the taskbar.
Update 2: Restoring the configuration didn’t work, so I had to go back to the recovery manager.

Can I still get XP sp3?
Service Pack 3 installation offers have been canceled because the Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP is no longer compatible with this version of Windows.
