Answers :

In TASK MANAGER go to FILE>>NEW TASK>> type "explorer" and press enter....
If this doesnt solve your problem...then your OS is corrupted with VIRUS....Download and install AVAST anti-virus from www.avast.com..
OR ELSE....RELOAD your OS (XP)
On task manager, press File -> then run.

Type Explorer.exe and press OK

see if you get the toolbar etc.

if you don't, would be most likely best to reinstall windows to the machine, with the acer recovery cd/dvd(s) that came with it.
