Windows 7: Why Did The Get Win 10 Icon Disappear On Both Of My Computers?

Why Did The Get Win 10 Icon Disappear On Both Of My Computers?

I have had the GWX Icon in my taskbar of both my desktop computers for nearly a month now. I did not reserve a copy of WIN 10 on either yet. However, the Icon on both computers have both just disappeared . Both computers are fully up to date (and fairly new) and one even showed that it was fully compatible with WIN 10 when I clicked on the Icon (I never clicked on the Icon on the second computer but I know it too is fully compatible). Now the Icons have just gone. What's up?

OK... The GW10 Icon just decided to reappear today on both computers after I turned them on. Yesterday even after rebooting several times they refused to show.

Win7 Pro + SP1 (64-bit). New reinstall from scratch going on for two days now, what with lots of applications to reinstall. I just noticed that the program icon for Internet Explorer (which is the new IE9 one) has gone "generic". This is true for both icons, the shortcut in the Start Menu as...

Renaming desktop icon makes it disappear
Apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere. My searching turned up nothing. I have a few icons on my desktop that are there for installed programs. Some of them have longish names, so I've tried to shorten a couple of them. When I do, the icon disappears, and I can't figure out why. It...
