disappearing icons?

  goomer 22:13 15 Oct 05


I keep losing my icons? Every time I restart my win xp pro system I lose most of my taskbar icons. The only ones that keep appearing are my wireless network connection and norton systemworks. All the others have gone.. occasionally they appear after I install new software only to go again after a restart. Any ideas anyone please?

Where did my icons go?
If all of your desktop icons are missing, right click on the Desktop, select Arrange Icons By, then select Show Desktop Icons
click here

Right click the Taskbar>Properties>Ensure that Hide Inactive Icons is unchecked.

If this, by any chance, doesn't work, Enable Lock the Taskbar.

I should have said that I have already checked that sorry, Taskbar is locked and auto hide is disabled. Even If I use custom autohide option to "always show" the icons they still dont reappear ... hmm
