The web is full of Super Heroes, sites that come and save the day in your moment of need without requiring anything in exchange. The combination of Google, expert forums and valuable Super Hero websites make tackling almost any task possible.
I was recently rescued when my programs stopped minimizing to the taskbar in Windows XP. My useless efforts were unable to restore the taskbar. A quick search on Google lead me to a posting on Experts Exchange where another user had this problem and had a posting with the resolution. If this happens to you go to my Super Hero website of the day at http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm where you can find a downloadable VB script to change the necessary registry value to fix the problem.
