Hi everyone I got a problem about my Windows' taskbar.
So to give a background about what happened.
My laptop was freezing frequently and I found out that it's because of a hard drive problem. I searched and it came to be a
bad block problem.
I did a
chkdsk and saw that the problem is about the Bitmap thingy.
chkdsk /f to fix the issue; though it worked for an hour or two only.
chkdsk /r. I knew the possible risks that might happen, but still continued.
After which, when I've open my laptop, (first, my login background was missing) and everything seems to be corrupted. Every directory that I try to open can't be opened. Some files in the desktop can be opened though; most of the icons are missing.
So I knew it, my laptop was broken! What I thought immediately is to reformat it.
And here come the final part. When I've decided to reformat my computer, I turned it on but in the middle of the boot it said something about "Repairing windows" or "Automatic Repair" thingy, so I've waited for it to finish.
When it finished, my login background came back, I can already open the directories I can't open before, the icons are back. But one thing was broken, the task bar.
Here are the broken things:
I tried restarting my laptop as well as restarting Windows Explorer, but to no avail, it is still the same. So I'm suspecting that the taskbar files were damaged or corrupted.
As you can see, Google Chrome is open but the no icon is present on the taskbar.
