I have used Spyware Terminator for a very long time with no problems. It is set to auto run on boot-up and puts an icon into the notification area of the system tray. Recently this icon has ceased to appear(but only occasionally). I still get the small pop-up which tells me that the real time shield has been initialized and the program itself seems to running OK , but the actual icon which allows you to access the right click options menu sometimes does not appear. I have done a clean uninstall/reinstall which certainly reinstates the icon. I cannot say with 100% certainty but it seems to be more prevalent after using the restart(Windows) option rather than the turn off(Windows) option. Any ideas?
