A Virus or screwed XP

By wennock ·
I have a XP Home installed.
When booting into XP now I log in and I dont get the start bar at the bottom. What i do get though is the small line as if it is hidden or minimised. But I am unable to get this back. Pressing the "start" button does nothing. Also my network adapter (pcima wireless) seems to have been removed. Windows seems to work ok apart from these problems as far as i can tell. Anyone any ideas as the next step to make??

Move your mouse to the bottom of the screen and a double arrow should appear, select left mouse button and drag it up to expand the task bar back to normal.

this doesnt work, you click and drag but the fadded line doesnt aprear. Its as if the start bar is locked at the bottom of the screen. I dont think its a "user issue" as non of the start button short cuts work. Although I can get the start bar Properties up???
