Your computer is running smoothly and efficiently, it couldn't be better. Suddenly you notice an Icon is missing from the system tray. Get it back you think, and therein lies a story. 2 days later, and I am still unsure that all the superb advice I have had from various forum members has worked because it seems to be an intermittant problem. However what a wonderfully helpfull forum this is. Chief Tinkerer Rawprawn
Tinkering=learning. Fixed or not I bet you have learned a few things along the way. It has always been the way forward; technology stagnates without people playing around with it, that’s why only 100 years after the Wright brothers flew we flew machines to Mars.
I bet a lot of forum members wouldn't exist if they hadn't found this site when trying to fix a tinker or two.
Had to do a bit of tinering myself yesterday to try and get my Y and Z virtual drives to show again in windows explorer after they had refused to show on re-booting. I still don't know whether what I tinkered with sorted the problem or whether closing down firefox, as it was using up nearly 80% of cpu usage, sorted it!
