Yes, there was a couple threads about this. However, they won't work. I have been searching up solutions for hours and days now however none will work. One reason; 'cause my dad's computer won't open up the Task Manager. I have tried Ctrl + Alt + Del and Ctrl + Shift + Esc. Although they do work on my sister's laptop. I cannot right click on the computer also. All that just appears is this error pop up.

Before the task bar and the icons have disappeared for a few seconds and reappear but I have not noticed the reason why until I shut off the computer and the next morning tried to open it.

So Any solutions, tips, advice?

ok first what type of errors are you seeing, write them down and post them. as far as opening the task manager, if you cant click start because of no task bar try pressing the key between the crtl and alt buttons its the one with the windows icon on it, then you can go to the control panel and click on the windows task manager icon.

while you are in the control panel you can also click on the tasbar and menu icon and see if the auto-hide taskbar box is checked.

It says:
"Run time error '5'

Invalid procedure call or arguement"

And the start button doesn't work.

a couple of things you might want to try is to boot into safe mode and try to run your antivirus and anti spyware software or you could also try to do a system restore to a time before the computer started to act up.

How am I suppose to run any antivirus and spyware if I can't access anything. I don't think I even have some on my dad's computer because they were useless as they cannot kill any viruses. Plus, trying to boot into safe mode won't work, tried before, just freezes the whole computer. Also, I don't know how to open up system restore if I cannot access task manager.

I ment for you to try and run the software when you were in safe mode, but you said safe mode wont work thats ok lets try somthing else

ok, if you hit the button on the keyborard between the Crtl and Alt buttons (it's the one with the windows icon on it) does the start menu show anywhere.

ViewSonic, makes monitors , Intel, Intel,makes processors or Asus, Asus makes computers ,among other things same for all of them .
so it sounds like you Dad has a Asus Computer with Intel inside ,and a nice View sonic monitor .and a nice big Virus ,that a number of free antivirus program could have stopped ,if one had been installed ,time to take computer in for repair .
