I woke up this morning and only half of my computer screen is up the other half has the "start" icon and the address bars that show what programs that I have running, it also has the time and date. My daughter was playing Webkinz last night, as she always does. Usually, I can use tthe little arrow and drop and drag the screen, but the arrows dont come up when I put the cursor there

As half the screen is occupied by the taskbar the resolution may have changed, open display properties(right click desktop > properties), goto settings check if the resolution has been set to 640*480 or 800*600, if so change it to 1024*768(the most commonly used resolution based on my site's visitor stats. If your resolution is or over 1024*768, a shortcut to fix the problem is to restore your computer to yesterday's settings, if it's not the resolution and you need to know how to restore the computer reply to this post.

Another possibility could be your task manager was resized to occupy half the screen...

I tried...I went to assesories, system tools, and restore to yesterday and I tried the day before. However, I cant see the right side of the screen. It seemed to do something as the hour glass was up for a minute but I restarted the computer and nothing....any suggestions?

so you can see both sides of the monitor ,one showing the taskbar the other the desktop
,right click on the half that is showing the taskbar and uncheck lock the taskbar ,then you should be able to drag it back to size .
