Windows 7: Bluestacks.....stuck in system tray

Bluestacks.....stuck in system tray

idk why but this program gives me the most trouble ever. i can open it but the con gets stuck in the system tray and has no taskbar icon. i have tried to pin the program to the taskbar, restarting my machine, going into comodo killswitch (taskmanager alternitive) to change the window to restore/maximize but the option is greyed out yet has worked in the past. installing and uninstalling this program can be a major ordeal as it has a tendency to partially uninstall or have trouble reinstalling due to the installing hanging.

i was wondering if anyone knows a way to manually bring a program to the front aside from the methods i have tried.

I have the same issue, latest build.
Your easy re-install solution didn't do the trick in my end.
Any other ideas?

Win 64

You can download a product called andy - Home - andy
this will allow you to run an android phone directly from your PC for which you can install any app, different from bluestacks this is an actual phone and not an app player which means you can install any app and use a PC phone, pretty cool!

I have also used Bluestacks, it slow down the system and eventually I uninstalled it.

Monitor your system temperatures. Stuff that 'slows down' your system can/will raise operating temps.
