Windows 7: Issue with taskbar icons

Issue with taskbar icons

Hi, I just changed my motherboard's CMOS battery (to resolve a BIOS issue I was having) and since then my taskbar is encountering an issue. My "Network" and "Catalyst Control Center" buttons have vanished, as you can see in the following screenshots: Uploaded with ImageShack.us Uploaded with ImageShack.us My mouse cursor still sort of highlights the areas where the icons should be, but there's nothing to click on. I of course rebooted my PC several times to check if the icons would come back. As you can see in the second picture, the icons aren't even showing in the Notification Icons Area section of the Control Panel. Again, this problem JUST happened after I inserted a new CMOS battery in my motherboard. Thanks in advance!

Look on the left side of your screen shot, you can restore default icon's, and put a check mark in the box below it, then do a restart and see what happens. As for the caytalist control center you may have to reinstall the drivers for video card
