I've just finished reinstalling the winscp 4.x release. It asked me to reboot. When I rebooted, my computer has come back without a task bar! I don't see the start button. Everything else is ok. Please advise what this installation has changed, because other than this I haven't installed anything in months!

I cannot fathom why WinSCP would do this... except that their may have been a conflict with something related to the windows explorer integration.

Try using task manager (ctrl-alt-delete)
File->new task(run)
Type "explorer" and hit enter... this should start windows explorer and display your task bar.

If your task bar still doesn't display... try re-installing or uninstalling winscp. You can navigate to the installer using the same method as I suggested above.

If you want to remove the software, run "control appwiz.cpl" to open the add remove programs control panel.

Thanks for this. I tried all that. Nothing worked. I just went back to my last saved settings using System Restore. I'm happy with WinSCP 3.8 for now.

I have never seen the problem before. Anyone else experiencing this?
