Windows 7: StickyNotes Disappears??

StickyNotes Disappears??

I use my Windows 7 sticky notes pinned to my bottom tray. Lately after my pc restarts the sticky notes icon disappears from my bottom tray. Usually I find the icon in the accessories catagory & I just re-execute it & repin it to the bottom tray.
But after my last recycle of the pc, sticky notes is not even found under the accessories area.
I've tried doing a search & a sticky notes file is found, but it cannot be opened.
Any help would be appreciated as I do like using sticky notes.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit SP1

The path is Windows\system32\stikyNot (application)
You should find it there.

Did you run any Registry cleaners as they can mess with SikyNotes?

if so, best to System Restore to before you ran the Registry cleaner/optimizer.
