    Click on the upward pointing arrow at the right of the Taskbar. Your icons may be hidden.

    What are the names of the 'things'? Do they show on the Taskbar only while the associated program is open? Do they disappear when the associated program is closed?

    icons for Mega, Phrase Express and Note Holder, and Kana Reminder . yes (sort of] to first question but usually i cant start the program if the icons are missing (program not running) , and yes to second question.

    they are sett to start with the pc but often dont and often simply disappear at random

    sometimes the volume control is missing too

    sometime the programs run in background with no icon showing and sometimes not

    . Generally no rhyme or reason to it all

    thanks

    Have you checked the event logs for errors when you start the PC?

    You can post it here. there may be several errors to post.

    You can re-boot or just scroll down the events to the last time you booted the system.

    Is this different to the apparently identical thread you posted here on this forum 2 days earlier?
