Taskbar/start Button Gone


I've been having this problem for a while now, where partway through a scan my taskbar and start button disappear. I just get a blank blue bar at the bottom of my screen. Using BD 2009, on windows XP (32 bit). The only way I can seem to get it back is by restarting, but after this happens it will freeze in the middle of a restart and I have to hard reset.


  • Alright it's been more than a day and still no response. Now 10 days since a scan was able to complete. Come on guys don't make me switch to the competition.
