'3' dongle problem?

My old '3' PAYG dongle went AWOL and I had to replace it with another one. I uninstalled, but the new one installed without the '3' connect icon. The dongle works OK except for that, should I reinstall to get the icon?

The most recent three dongles install themselves as a network card and do not require any further software. I made a similar move about a year ago and found that my old PC ran much better without the Three Connect software. The only drawback is lack of text messages from 3. Incidentally I made further improvements by purchasing a TP-Link 3g router and removing all software related to the dongle from the PC. Connection is now by Wi-Fi

' The only drawback is lack of text messages from 3' yes that's what I thought!
