Taskbar vanished

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

Hi,

All of a sudden, a client of mine is not able to see the Taskbar on his
windows desktop. OS is Windows XP.
For some reason, the window key on the keyboard is also not popping up the
Start menu.
Basically, the Start menu can not be accessed.

Does anybody know what may cause this behavior? And, what is the probable
solution for this problem?

Thanks in advance for your help,
- Atul
