    Possible Solution Taskbar or Start Menu Not Visible in Coherence Mode or Window Mode.

    First let me start off by stating how much I regret using Parallels for Mac OS X. The product is mediocre, the support is horrible.

    In a nutshell, FIRST uninstall Parallels Tools, THEN Install Parallels tools. Do not follow the advice of tech support when they state to simply re-install parallels tools.

    That said, here's how I solved the Problem on my Mac running Snow Leopard 10.6.1 (keep in mind I could not navigate Windows at all when Parallels first loads:

    Launch Parallels.

    Go to VIRTUAL MACHINE>>SEND KEYS>>CTRL+ALT+DEL
    When Task Manager Opens, Select FILE>>NEW TASK(RUN)
    In the Open Field; Enter "C:\Program Files\Parallels\Parallels Tools\uninstall.bat" or BROWSE and navigate to the uninstall.bat file in the Parallels directory. Then Click OK.
    After the uninstall is completed, restart Parallels if it does not restart automatically.
    After Restart, got to VIRTUAL MACHINE>>REINSTALL PARALLELS TOOLS
    Restart once again

    Hope you have good results like I did.

    Peter
