    Issue with Taskbar in Windows Vista

    I am facing problem in opening Taskbar in Windows Vista OS. Whenever I try to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete it just stucks and never opens the Taskbar at all. After sometime it will show the error as “Windows Taskbar stopped working properly” and asks for Restart or Wait for the program to respond. If I say restart it open for some time and again closes and shows the same problem. How to fix this problem? Can you please give me a proper solution for this?

    Re: Issue with Taskbar in Windows Vista

    hello.. friends..

    1. Taskbar context menu is disabled. No menu appears when you right-click on taskbar.
    Sol. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. Now go to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer
    In right-side pane, delete "NoTrayContextMenu" DWORD value.
    2. "Lock the Taskbar" option is disabled. Whenever you right-click on Taskbar, "Lock the Taskbar" option is grayed out:

    Sol. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. Now go to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer
    In right-side pane, delete "LockTaskbar" DWORD value.
    3. Can't add toolbars using "Toolbars" menu in Taskbar context menu. All options are grayed out:

    Sol. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. Now go to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer
    In right-side pane, delete "NoCloseDragDropBands" DWORD value.
    4. Can't open Taskbar Properties. Whenever you click on "Properties" in taskbar context menu, an error message appears:

    Sol. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. Now go to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer
    In right-side pane, delete "NoSetTaskbar" DWORD value.
    5. Can't resize or move Taskbar even "Lock the Taskbar" option is unchecked.
    Sol. Type regedit in RUN dialog box and press Enter. Now go to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\Advanced
    In right-side pane, delete "TaskbarSizeMove" DWORD value.
