Task Bar icon issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am unable to maximise any opened programs from the task bar or even open any of the icons from it. I can open the icon on the desktop but once i've minimised it, i cannot access it on the task bar because it won't open up from there. What is the cause of this and how can it be resolved?

  • To Run the SFC /SCANNOW Command at Boot
    1. For how, see: SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot


    To Run the SFC /SCANNOW Command in Windows 7
    1. Open a elevated command prompt (right click -> Run as administrator).

    2. To Scan and Repair System Files
    NOTE: Scans the integrity of all protected system files and repairs the system files if needed. Please see red WARNING box at the top of this tutorial.
    A) In the elevated command prompt, type sfc /scannow and press Enter. (see screenshot below)
    NOTE: This may take a little bit to finish.

    B) Go to step 4.
    3. To Only Verify if the System Files are Corrupted
    NOTE: Scans and only verifies the integrity of all proteced system files only. This command will not change your system files as in the red WARNING box at the top of this tutorial.
    A) In the elevated command prompt, type sfc /verifyonly and press Enter.
    4. When the scan is complete, hopefully you will see all is ok like the screenshot below.

    Note   Note
    • If SFC could not fix something, then run the command again to see if it may be able to the next time. Sometimes it may take running the sfc /scannow command 3 or more times to completely fix everything that it's able to.
    • If not, then you can attempt to run a System Restore using a restore point dated before the bad file occured to fix it. You may need to repeat doing a System Restore until you find a older restore point that may work.
    • If still not, then you can use the steps in the TIP box in the OPTION THREE section below to manually replace the files that SFC could not fix.

    5. When done, close the elevated command prompt.
