Taskbar flashes then disappears

Running WIndows XP SP3 on a virtual machine on a Macbook.  When the Virtual machine boots up the Taskbar flashes then disappears.  I can get to the startup menu by pressing ctrl-esc.  The space the taskbar would us is still there.  I checked and explorer.exe is running.  All mu desktop icons are there and work, just not startup button/taskbar.

Auto-hide was not turned on.  I was able to fix the issue by shutting down eplorer.exe as the shell then restarting the shell.

Hello AltegrisAdmin, I take it that you do not have Auto Hide On?? Also, do you have a program such as ObjectDock that can hide the task bar (This would explain the flash on start up)??
