Windows 7: What might cause program icon on taskbar to vanish

09 Sep 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate

Hello and thanks,
With all your encouragement and APS suggesting the same thing, I did it. I'd like to say that W7 doesn't like me. But maybe its' changing it's attitude. Used Revo Free to uninstall and did a reinstall and reboot. Everything is back up where it is supposed to be. One word of advice to any that must follow this route, copy down the backup times, they aren't reinstalled. I am keeping a record so I can get my electric company to fix the problem. I've had them out twice and since this occurred it hasn't accrued any new data, so maybe they did fix it, like they said.
Thanks again to a great bunch of helpful members.
