Hey, can any of you great IT people suggest a few fixes to a few problem for me please.

1)My Sound Icon and My Safely remove icon has disappeared from the taskbar, when i go to sound properties and reselect show icon in taskbar, they both come up again, but next logon, the problem reoccurs and the box is unticked.

2) When the computer sleeps the monitor stop recieving signal as normal but the green light stays on, but i remember that always used to blink in sleep, After this i can not get it started up again either by pressing a key or miving the mouse, pressing power button does nothin,a nd holding it down turns it off, but when pressed again to turn it on it goes right back to what it looks like when in the problematic sleep. Only turning it off at the switch then on again cures it.

sorry I don't know about your Monitor, It might be a good idea to tell us your OS and Monitor make and model

tried it, checked it, and then tried to run it by double click but it just opens in notepad. No right lcik options work as intended just opens in notpad.

form the link
"useage download past items vbs"
when yo hover the curser over the word download ,it then turns red,right click it, save link as,once on desktop or whereever you save your downloads open from there
if double click doesnt work,right click>open with command prompt
