Today when I started up my computer, I noticed a bunch of icons were missing from my taskbar on the bottom right of my screen (next to the clock) for some reason. No it's NOT hidden my inactive icons thing, as there is no "<" arrow to click to show any hidden icons at all.
I used msconfig to change from selective to default (load all) startup, but some icons, such as avast!, my finger print reader, ad-aware, my realtek audio, and some other icons still don't show.
I've tried solutions such as changing the theme of Vista, disabling some Plug and Play network service, checking and unchecking the inactive icons option, even restarting multiple times, and http://www.colincochrane.com/post/2007/10/...-Icons-Fix.aspx , but they all don't work.
The only change i can think of that I did to my system was running iolo System Mechanic yesterday. Before I did that, I created a restore point, so I went into system restore to see if I could restore my system to a previous state, and guess what? System Mechanic wiped all my restore points! I'm going to go complain to them, but in the meantime, does anyone have any solutions to my problem?
Oh yeah, and in System Mechanic, the "revert changes made by system mechanic" list shows nothing...so I can't revert what the stupid program did. Have also tried uninstalling the program, to no avail.
Thanks a lot!
