Lost IE icon and sound controls icon from taskbar

Q: Lost IE icon and sound controls icon from taskbar

2 problems:
1) no IE icon on desktop or in programs. i have internet access through verizon. i recently got windows update to install IE7 in the hope that would restore the icon/program but the only way i can access the internet is via the verizon browser. i clearly installed IE7 because now the "sidebar" of my verizon browser says that "sidebar i currently not compatible with IE7...". so why can't i get the IE7 icon in my program list or desktop?

i have attached the HijackThis file

2)my volume controls have disappeared from my windows taskbar and i'd like it back. do you know how?
thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

This is a very simple matter. I have always had an icon on my taskbar for accessing my desktop that I use quite often. Its been there so long that I can't remember if I put it there or if it came that way on the computer. Tonight, the icon had changed and when I clicked on it, I got the little flashlight and asked if I wanted to search. Grrrr. Not the end of the world but I would really like to have it back. Thank you!

For some reason FireFox doesnt want me to use my own icon for it in the taskbar. ill change the icon, pin it to the taskbar, click the new icon and itll open up a new firefox default icon on the taskbar so there will be 2.

anyway around this?

A:FireFox Taskbar Icon, Makes Duplicate Taskbar Icon's

Let's fix the duplicate icon first, open Firefox from the pinned icon you have already after the second one opens up unpin the first one and pin the second one that should stop the duplicate icon.

Now the icon go to C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar then right-click on the Firefox shortcut click on properties make sure you're in the Shortcut tab and click on the Change Icon Button. After you open up Firefox again icon will revert back to the default icon because it opens up Firefox.exe you would have to change the icon in the .exe for a permanent change.

I don't want to combine my windows, but when i have only one window open in any program, i know what it is and don't need to see the label as that makes the whole taskbar filled up pretty fast.
Is there a way to hide labels when there is one window open, and show labels when having multiple windows?
I've tried googling it but it doesn't seem like it is possible with some program either.

I need help getting to the bottom of this, not sure why it's happening, or when it started happening, maybe a week ago...

I get a seemingly random icon flash on the taskbar for no more than a few miliseconds, so i checked
event viewer to track down what was happening and the only thing i can find is 2 events in the subcategory
Application that states the source as RestartManager
and the event ID as 10000 and 10001, these both appear every time the icon flashes on the taskbar

I think this issue is also causing fullscreen flash vids to show the taskbar and a loading circle on the cursor... also Battlefield 4 likes to get a black screen then when i alt-tab i'm back to the game without any crashing or any error besides this ominous
black screen

I installed a program yesterday and pinned an icon onto my taskbar. I've noticed today that the icon has gone and has been replaced by the default windows icon (red, blue white). Even if I go into properties, change icon etc, nothing happens.

I have created a shortcut icon which takes me directly to my Online Banking Login page.
I would like to place this icon (an image of a padlock taken from windows icon cache) on the taskbar.
My problem is, when I drag the icon to the taskbar a popup asks me if I want to 'Pin to Internet Explorer'...this is the only option given.
If I drop the icon onto the taskbar it changes my 'Padlock' icon to that of Internet Explorer...Clicking on this IE icon still takes me to my Online Banking Login page but I find it confusing having an IE icon.

Does anyone know how I can have my 'Padlock' icon showing on the taskbar.

When I go to "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" and click on the "Notification Area" Tab I see that under "System Icons" that the only one I can check is the Clock; all the others are grayed out and I can't check them, however, I had a Sound Icon in my Taskbar previously that has for some odd reason simply disappeared, and since I can't check on it here, I can't seem to get it back in my Taskbar no matter where I look on the computer. How can I restore this option so that I have a Sound Icon in my Taskbar again, and are the other two features--Network and Power, a problem being that they too are grayed out?

Thanks for your help.

When you go into the control panel the icon marked sound is NOT THERE?? correct? and its not on taskbar? hold the windows logo key and the R key and type into the box devmgmt.msc and advise us what is listed next to the sound and video controllers. (you will have to expand the listing via the + sign to its left) Also advise if there is ANY yellow triangles or exclamation points on ANY of the other devices. We will also need you EXACT product make and number.

A:Missing Sound Icon on Taskbar gone after various viruses

G'day Bob,


There are a couple of ways to rectify this pesky critter (the Volume Icon) misbehaving, so lets try these two Steps....

(You will need your Windows? XP CD)

Insert the Windows? XP CD in the Drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting)....

STEP One:
Now go Start > Run and enter these commands....(hit Enter after each command.)

cmd

Enter your CD/DVD Drive letter (I will use E: for this exercise.)

E:

cd i386

expand sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\sndvol32.exe

(Please note the space between the ex_ and the c:)

Once you hit enter this time you will notice that the file will be 'expanded by an amount of about 145%'.

When it is finished, type exit; remove the CD.

STEP Two:

1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
2. Click Services and Applications.
3. Double-click Services.
4. Scroll down in the Services list, right-click SSDP Discovery Service, and then click Properties.
5. On the General tab, in the Startup type drop-down list, click Disabled.
6. Click OK.

Close all windows and reboot the computer.

Upon restart, all should now be normal (hopefully).

Post back with the results, and if there are any other queries/concerns.

Kind Regards,

At Windows 7, I created 3 program shortcuts which execute same executable. Then I changed icons for second shortcut and third shortcut. When I launched the executable from the second and third shortcut, the taskbar icon of the executable will be that of the shortcut icon instead of the executable MainForm icon. In XP and Vista, it will use MainForm icon in the taskbar. Is this the intended behaviour of Windows 7?

Wish I had a better title, but I wasn't sure how to word this.

Basically what's happening is I have 2 instances of Firefox (different versions and different folder locations) and one of the instances is not opening where it's icon location is.

Example Screenshot:
As you can see. The far left instance does not want to open where it's icon location is.
The far right version always does it.
Even if I unpin the currently working instance (blue/orange icon) to only house 1 firefox instance (grey/black), the grey/black instance will still not open like the blue/orange instance current does (in it's own icon).
Hopefully this isn't confusing for anyone. I searched for a few terms to see if anyone had this problem and nothing came up, maybe I wasn't wording my searches correctly.

Hopefully someone can give some insights.
Thanks.

Some time over the last few weeks I lost the Speaker Volume control icon on my Taskbar (Normally on the right side near the digital clock). I don't know what I did to make it leave, but I was looking for it just the other day and realized it was gone! I went into my Control Panel to access the audio sliders, and when I checked the box to display the volume control icon on the Taskbar, a text box popped up telling me that I have to install it from my add/remove programs function. Well, I can not find the Volume Control icon function anywhere, including on my original Windows XP Professional installation CD. Can anyone tell me how I can re-install the speaker Volume Control icon on my Taskbar?

Thanks!

My Volume controls were stuck at bottom and all options to change greyed out. Under the properties I noticed an advanced controls button checked under the options button but unable to get to it. I have no volume and my volume controls are now not acessable from a shortcut only way I was able to get was to troubleshoot from device manager for the realtek ac97 audio. my volume control panel now only has three slide bars wave swsynth and cd player all the other controls that used to be on it are gone. This has to be a virus or something I realllllly need someones help to fix this

It's possible that your icon cache became damaged or corrupt for some unknown reason. You could try rebuilding it and see what happens.

Running Vista Home Premium x64 SP2.

This week an icon showed up in my task bar and I can't get rid of it, don't recall installing any programs to trigger this. Right click does nothing, Task manager(applications) doesn't show the program, so I can't end task, and I don't see any processes(unnecessary) that would be attached to this. When I Alt+Tab, it shows "Desktop" with a small window in the lower right hand corner.

I have attached pictures, if that helps.

Hi,
I have created a VBS file, when i open it in the taskbar i get the standard 'Icon Missing' Type icon in the taskbar, and was wondering how to change it to a custom icon, like the one bellow (from my school)
All help appreciated.

A:Add Taskbar icon to .vbs

Did you try creating an actual shortcut to the .vbs file then right-clicking it and choosing Properties then Change icon? The icon you want to use has to be on the HDD in a Folder, usually in the same Folder as the file, and you'd choose that icon. It's best to save the icon as a .ico file and adhere to the size limit for it, can't be very large. Most icons associated with programs are embedded in their .exe file, maybe in a .dll file.

Hello Right click on a blank area of the desktop.Select "Arrange Icons By".Do you have a check mark next to "Auto Arrange" ?A check mark next to "Auto Arrange" will cause an icon that is dragged to spring back to where it was when trying to move it from one place to another on the desktop, but it should have no bearing on adding an icon to the Quick Launch bar.Now, regarding trying to drag it to the taskbar...do you mean that you are trying to add that icon to the Quick Launch bar ?When you drag it to the Quick Launch bar, you left click on the icon, continue to hold onto the left click, and drag it.As you hover over the Quick Launch bar, do you see an I bar cursor (shaped like the capital letter I) in that spot on the Quick Launch bar where you intend to drop it ? Are you letting go of the left click of the mouse when you see the I bar cursor ?I don't think a locked taskbar will cause that. I just tried dragging an icon to my Quick Launch bar, and was successful in dragging/dropping it onto the Quick Launch bar.

A:No icon in taskbar

The icons will not show up until you connect. (on a dialup) This is normal. When you disconnect from the internet, the icon disappears also. If you are on a LAN, you can turn these on also, when the LAN is disconnected, a RED X appears in the little TV icon. In other words, on a dialup connection, the icons are supposed to disappear when the connection is lost. Exception to this is on an external modem, then the icon should appear with a RED X through it when disconnected. Do you have an external modem? The LAN icon will always be present when a network card is installed. The LAN and Dialup icons look alike. I hope I understood your problem. If not, please post back with the exact type of connection you are using and as much info about where exactly you are going to reset you icon. Thanks

The problem I'm having is in the taskbar. The internet icon just shows the bars with a red cross through them (as if to signify the internet isn't working), instead of before the bridge where it showed the speed levels of the internet with the coloured bars.

I know this is a minor thing, but is there any way I could get the icon back to its original state while keeping the bridge?

As far as I'm aware this is currently impossible.
However you can change the IE icon manually by right clicking the IE icon on your desktop, clicking properties and clicking 'Change Icon...' near the bottom of the Shortcut Tab. From here click browse and replace it with any compatible icon file you want.

2) why would you possibly need 12 applications running on boot?....I suggest turning off most of them in msconfig and running them from the start menu when you need them.

I'm using Windows XP.

When I "Open Network Connections" and right-clicked on the ethernet controller with the X on it, went to Properties, the box "Show Icons in Notification Area When Connected" is not checked.

I right-clicked the taskbar > Properties, the only choice it gives me is to "Hide When Inactive".

This icon wasn't here before and I don't want it hogging my taskbar.

Any ideas on how to get rid of it?

The yellow update icon in the task bar is always there. Everytime I shut down I get the window saying I have one update to be downloaded. It goes through the update process, then shuts down. When I start up the next time that icon is still there with what looks like a 1 (one) in it.
 
How do I fix this problem?

A:Update icon in taskbar

First of all - Welcome to BC !
 
When the computer is up and running have you tried clicking on this icon to see if there is an update hanging around waiting to be downloaded and installed ?  There are very few MS updates for XP now, i think the only one routinely released is the 'Malicious software tool'.

Hi to all.

Sometimes when I take a look at taskbar, I could find a suspicious icon which when I try to point to it with mouse, it disappears immediately! I attached a picture to this post about this damn icon. I appreciate if any one could aware me about its identity and about how to remove it if it is harmful.

Thanks.

A:Suspicious Icon in Taskbar!

That looks like Windows 7 Magnifier. If so it's not harmful.
That little Icon is also part of the selection of Icons that come with Windows 7.
Have you applied that Icon to any program?

I want to put shortcut to websites, such as yahoo, or google, etc on the taskbar so the icon is not hidden behind main screen (like my dsktp shrtct is). When I look how to do it under google, it gives msoft site which says "Add Icons to the Desktop or Taskbar". Under that it has "To Pin APPS to the Taskbar" and "To Add Shortcuts to the....DESKTOP". Huh?? That makes it sound like it is not possible to add a google or yahoo shortcut to the.....TASKBAR. Sometimes they make what should be simple things to do sound so confusing.

A:Icon has appeared in my Taskbar has no name

It's kind of hard to tell what you are talking about.
 
Something you have installed has added that icon for you, so, you need to uninstall something to remove it.
 
Have you tried right clicking it to get its options menu? You will be able to see what it is then too.

Is it possible to group icons that are pinned in the taskbar, into groups for quick launch. Example; system tools would be the name and have 4 icons inside that group name, like speed fans SIV64, cpuz and siw. Sort of like you can in windows 8 with the tiles.

A:taskbar icon grouping

Hello Jimbo,

I suppose that you could create folders for each group and pin the folders to the taskbar as toolbars. Afterwards, arrange (drag) the toolbars how you like on the taskbar.

Hope this helps.

I have several dozen programs installed on my Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit PC. One program in particular does not display it's icon on the task bar when opened, but rather displays a generic "blank page" icon. It's icon will be displayed if I create a shortcut for the program on the desktop, just not the task bar. I have tried re-building the icon cache, to no avail. Does anyone know how to fix this? It's driving me nuts.

Thanks for any and all replies!

A:Generic Taskbar Icon!

I have run into that issue frequently using 7Stacks Taskbar launcher utility. The only "solution" I've found is to use a custom icon. It happens frequently enough that I have a folder for these icons under Documents. I just search for a free icon suitable for the program. If you want the exact icon from the program itself you can use an icon extraction tool to extract the icon from the exe file. Save it as .ico. Then use it as "custom icon."

Inside the shortcut there should be an Advanced Button and inside that a button for Custom Icon or Change Icon.

This "blank paper icon" bug has plagued Windows as far back as 3.x(maybe longer. But I started using Windows with version 3.0.)

I can't fathom out this weird problem, on my Icon in the taskbar for Internet access It has a Red cross at the bottom right corner of the Icon, but my Internet connection works fine, so does my Home Network to my old XP machine and to my Smart TV and Blu Ray player, even to my Mobile phone.

Anybody know why it's got this red x on it please ?

A:Red X on Internet Icon in the Taskbar

Hi Atomic245,

The 'Red cross' Network icon in the 'system tray' indicates a connection that is not being used. Since your PC is connecting fine to the internet, it is likely that you have more than one 'Network connections' available for use. It is also likely that the system is connected to the internet either through 'Ethernet or Wireless'; and the other one is installed/disabled.

Please follow these steps to capture more information:

1. Click 'Start' and type 'ncpa.cpl' (without quotations) in 'Search box' and tap 'Enter' > Capture and share details

2. Click 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotations) in 'Search box' and tap 'Enter' (Device Manager Opens) > Locate and Expand 'Network Adapters' category > Capture details of all 'devices' that are listed underneath (Also check if any of these devices has a question mark/exclamation mark' besides it) > Also check 'Other Devices' category and share details of any device that is listed with a 'mark' besides it.

3. Open Command Prompt and type 'ipconfig /all' (without quotation) and tap 'Enter'. The window will display detailed information about the working of 'network connections' in the system.

Do reply with the information; would be glad to assist.

Hi. With Win10 I've noticed that left-clicking the volume icon at bottom right no longer works. Neither does the network icon. These icons worked right after install, but now randomly appear to just stop working. Other icons (program icons, for eg) next to them DO work, and right-click works, just not left-click. I can adjust the volume with the slider on the keyboard but not the mouse any more. I also have issues with the keyboard randomly stopping working, but this sometimes happened with Win7 and could be because it's old

This is just one of a bunch of issues Win7 never had and Win10 does have. I'm thinking this is why they released it free
