W7 still like to throw me curve balls. Thanks for any assistance!
Hi Glennc

No that was certainly not normal behaviour. I don't remember seeing any posts about issues with this months updates. The only thing I would say is that just because the tray icon was missing doesn't automatically mean Mse was removed, it may just have been a tray icon issue. Sometimes after I have updated or installed large amounts of softtware It can take a couple of reboots to reconfigure the boot/start-up program sequence again and some of those updates where quite significant in size and took some time to settle again after reboot.(Mainly the .NET updates)

Hello Danny,
This could have been the case, as it was a .NET download and windows defender. I just did a download and reinstalled. That seemed to happen without a hitch, no error indications. So I just don't know!
Thanks for the assist
I think that was the case, glad to hear it went ok this time
